|Fig. 171 shows you the importance of signaling when you plan to pass on the shoulder.|
|But always lookout for the always dangerous "Atak Trucks". You should only pass these vehicles with another "sacrificial car" between you and this potentially deadly monster, as shown in Fig. 171.|
In wintery conditions, special precautions must be taken:
1. test road conditions by stopping your car and examining the road surface. Consider tasting the road for saltiness. A safe winter road should taste like a potato chip.
2. Drive at lower speeds. If anything really gnarly happens, you'll want to be able to describe it to your children in great detail.
3. Follow at longer distances, to gather more speed as you rear end the driver in front of you.
4. Use tire chains, to safely tear the shit out of the pavement. This will lead to a more "texturized" road surface, for better traction, and thus, more safety.
5. Keep windshield clean. Snow makes an excellent cleaner. Also remember that urine freezes at a lower temperature than water. Hey, just saying.
6. Avoid foolish driving acts, such as steering, braking, or moving in any direction.
