Bad weather raises the chances of an incident occurring, but if you are paying attention to what is going on with your car and your surroundings, then you can increase your chances of being safe on the road. Look as far ahead as you can to anticipate any situation, but also be aware of what's going on underneath you by the seat of your pants and what you can feel the front wheels doing through the steering wheel. This will give you all the information you need to know that all is progressing smoothly, and will also tell you when something isn't right.
Check and clean your lights regularly. The salt and dirt can quickly build-up, reducing the effectiveness of the lights and reducing your visibility to other road users. It's best to keep your lights on in all sorts of weather, as it helps you to be seen. Carry extra bulbs in case of a failure, but do try and learn how to replace the bulbs when it's convenient, because you can guarantee that when one blows it'll be in the dark, in freezing cold and possibly wet weather, which isn't an ideal time to learn about your car.
The heart of the Accord line is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four backed by a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). This is the powertrain that will be found in most of the Accords sold at retail, the ones dealers push out the door every day wearing $199 monthly leases or 72 months of $300-per-month financing. A million or more Accords equipped like this will make their way onto American roads over the next several years before Honda even thinks about revising this powertrain. If you don’t wind up driving a car like this yourself, it’s likely someone in your immediate family will. Maybe even someone with whom you’re on speaking terms.

It's up to you whether you buy a second set of wheels to fit them on, but if you choose to swap the winter tyres onto the same wheels, it's a job for a tyre fitter, as it's a pretty tough job to do yourself.
The team -- initially dubbed the “quiz kids” because they cajoled Ford colleagues with so many questions early on -- included Robert McNamara, who also became Ford president before serving as secretary of defense under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson.
And President Johnson tapped him to become the first president of the Urban Institute, a think tank launched to address the nation's growing urban problems.
“We’re lucky in the auto business,” Miller told The Boston Globe in 1966, according to The New York Times. “So many businesses have to work hard to create a demand. But for us, the minute a kid hits 16 he automatically wants a car.”
The game does a great job of making the player feel claustrophobic, both because of the in-car camera and the narrow trails with sheetmetal-shredding obstacles on each side. Like “Dirt,” you’ll have to get proficient at listening to the navigator call out instructions at speed, but it’s not as hard as you might think. The directions are displayed at the top of the screen, and once you hear “left 3” you’ll be waiting for it. Once it’s passed, it disappears, replaced by the next bit of info.
