The days are getting shorter and the temperatures are dropping. Winter arriving means there will inevitably be a couple of massive snowstorms across North America over the next few months. Unless you’ve never left Florida or Southern California, you’ll deal with white stuff falling from the sky at some point and end up driving in less-than-ideal conditions behind the wheel of a vehicle that might not be up to the task.

What’s the worst thing about driving in the winter? Is it putting your all-season tires to the ultimate test on an unplowed road covered in six inches of snow? Is it dodging ice sliding off a tractor-trailer in front of you on a highway? Is it dealing with a sudden whiteout that brings visibility to almost nothing? Maybe it’s just getting your car started in freezing temperatures. I want to know.

Now, there are some things you can do to improve your experience during this unforgiving time of year. The best advice for winter weather driving is simply not to get behind the wheel, according to AAA. It’s a bit obvious, but not possible in every situation. Realistically, you should be aware of the conditions. There will be less grip on the road, meaning it’s easier to lose control of your vehicle and more difficult to stop. Keep more distance between yourself and other drivers, and please drive more slowly.

Don’t hesitate to share what you hate about driving during the winter down in the comments below, and stay safe on the roads over the next few months.
