Black Ice

  • Dangerous because you can’t see it
  • Common areas you find black ice:
    • Bridges
    • Overpasses
    • Underpasses
    • Shaded areas
    • Most any road in the Eifel during winter
  • What do you do if…..
    • Do not panic!
    • Don’t make sudden changes in speed/direction
    • Ease off of the accelerator
    • Steer in the direction the rear of the vehicle is skidding

Winter, Summer or All-Season Tires?

  • Winter or All-season tires are required when driving on SNOW and ICE
    • Driving without = €20 fine
    • Driving without & hinder another motorist = €40 fine
  • The "M+S" or "M/S" indicates that the tire has some mud and snow capability
  • Most radial tires have these markings; hence they have some mud and snow capability
  • No studded tires are permitted
slide6

Snow Tires

  • Do not mix tires - install four snow tires
  • Do not use old worn tires - snow traction is reduced
  • Proper air pressure = Improved performance
  • Snow or All-Season tires required in Winter

Tires marked with the pictograph of a peaked mountain with a snowflake meet snow traction requirements, and are designed for use in snow conditions
