Tips and helpful hints for driving on wintry roads, the science behind it.

People don’t appreciate the physics. You control the vehicle by using the traction that is generated between the tires and the road. And you lose control when that interface is interrupted.

Bob Swint, CEO of ATA Associates, was recently interviewed by Michigan-based freelance writer Melissa Preddy regarding the science of driving on wintry roads. Published in the December 4, 2014 issue of the Detroit News, the article focused specifically on the relationship between tires to icy and wet pavement. According to Swint, “People don’t appreciate the physics. You control the vehicle by using the traction that is generated between the tires and the road. And you lose control when that interface is interrupted.”
