Winter is dangerous because’s difficult to know what is going to happen and accidents happen so easily in winter. For can be waiting to meet you over the top of a hill. Ice ahead might be hiding under the melting(融化)snow, waiting to send you off the road. The car coming towards you may suddenly go across the road.
Rule Number One for driving on icy roads Is to drive smoothly. Sudden movements can make a car very difficult to control. So every time you turn the wheel, touch the brakes(刹车)or Increase your speed you must do as smoothly and slowly as possible. Imagine you are driving with a full cup of hot coffee on the seat next to you. Drive carefully and make sure that the coffee won't spill out of the cup.

Remember that you may be driving more quickly than you think. So keep enough distance when the road is wet. Three times this distance on snow, and even more on ice. Try to stay in control of your car at all times and you will get away from trouble.
