Gas is better than the brakes

When a driver feels startled or unsure, the natural reaction is to hit the brakes. In the snow and especially on ice, however, you’ll have very little control over a braking car with locked wheels. This is why in most situations it’s better to slow down simply by taking your foot off the gas and braking with the engine.
