Under icy or snowy conditions, which of the following is NOT a reasonable precaution to take?


In wintertime when roads can be covered in ice or snow, take steps to increase your vehicle's traction and give yourself more room to maneuver. Make sure your windows are clear of ice, snow, and frost so you can see as far as possible. Slow down and increase your following distance behind the vehicle ahead of you. There's no good reason to start driving in the highest possible gear. However, on a slippery surface like ice or snow, some drivers prefer to start driving in second gear instead of first gear. First gear provides so much torque that the drive wheels may start to spin.
