Along with its finding, MoneyGeek published a list of tips and suggestions on both how to prepare for winter weather driving as well as how to handle your vehicle in the event you start sliding on ice.

Among those tips are three basic rules from Dan Robinson of Storm Highway:

1. Don't hit the brakes. Braking makes the slide worse; ease your foot off the gas instead.

2. Turn into the slide. Turn your wheels in the direction the back of the vehicle is sliding.

3. Don't overcorrect. Overcorrecting causes the car to keep spinning and is more likely to cause an accident.
