    Winter storms provide some of the most dangerous road conditions for motorists, which is why MSNBC has released a report of safety driving tips for people.

    Staying hydrated by consuming water and having sufficient food intake may make the difference between getting out of a risky predicament or not, says the report.┬áPeople may not realize it, but if the weather is cold enough, then dehydration is a real risk. Carrying a day’s worth of high-energy food, including sandwiches, fruit or even quick-sugar-release snacks.

    As for driving, the report recommends cruising slow enough to maintain total control of the vehicle. In fact, reducing speed by 50 percent is an approach worth keeping in mind. Another technique is to know how to recover from unexpected skids, which entails going with the momentum of the car because jamming on the brakes may add fuel to the situation.

    Providing a vehicle with a safety kit, including an ice scraper, brush, tow rope, blankets and a flashlight, according to the report.

    In the event things don’t go so smoothly and a tragedy takes place, it is necessary to have life insurance. It helps make sure family members will be provided for financially so they are able to pay for funeral costs, medical bills and lawyer fees.
