Slow down to speed up

2014-01-08

We’re in the middle of a cold spell here in Ontario and the roads are slick with slush. Driving home from work my car was having trouble making it up a hill. With other anxious drivers behind me and me being stuck going 20 kph my gut reaction was to push harder on the gas. If you live in frosty regions, you’ll know that only makes it worse. The best option is to let up on the gas, let the wheel’s catch and start again.

Ease up. Get your bearings. Slow down to speed up.
