As winter driving is upon us, reminder to everyone who drives an automatic
vehicle. You can still gear down to second gear (2 instead of D) to use the
engine's torque for safer driving on snow and ice. Much safer than riding
your brakes. Also, stick a bag of sand in the back of your car, the added
weight can't hurt. Plus if you find yourself stuck & spinning, you'll be
glad to have the sand on hand.
