Advice For Driving In The Snow
Heart's been getting advice on how to drive in the ice and snow from an advanced motorist in Northamptonshire.
John Norrie is the group leader for the Institute of Advanced Motorists. It's a voluntary position which involves teaching advanced driving techniques.
He told Heart driving in the snow is something that worries a lot of people.
He says he sees all kinds of mistakes being made:
"I see people setting off looking though a little patch in the windscreen the size of a football and thats just crazy you can't see whats going on.
"Also they drive far too close to each other, and they drive far too quickly for the conditions, so they're going along quite happily and as soon as they try to steer or brake it all goes horribly wrong."
Here's some advice from John on What To Do If Your Car Starts Skidding In The Snow and How To Avoid Wheel Spinning In The Snow
