1. REDUCE SPEED to gain better control of the vehicle. Safety must come ahead of schedules.
  2. WHEN STARTING UP, depress the accelerator pedal lightly. If rear wheels begin the slightest spin or side-slip, release the pedal immediately and repeat the procedure until the vehicle moves without spin or side-slip.
  3. WHEN APPLYING BRAKES, begin much sooner than you would on a dry street. Depress the brake pedal lightly.  If rear wheels begin the slightest slide or side-slip, release the pedal immediately to allow wheels to roll and downshift if necessary.  Repeat the procedure until the wheels no longer slide or side slip.
  4. INCREASE FOLLOWING DISTANCE between yourself and other vehicles, parked cars and fixed objects to provide a safety factor in case of side-slipping. However, do not allow so much clearance that another vehicle could get between the bus and a fixed object or parked car.
  5. INCREASE FOLLOWING DISTANCE to allow the additional space for braking. The more slippery the pavement, the greater the following distance required.
  6. AVOID QUICK OR ABRUPT TURNING MOVEMENTS. Steer more slowly and gradually reduce the possibility of skids.
  7. PROTECT YOUR PASSENGERS. Make warning announcements to boarding and alighting passengers.
  8. Avoid any actions to hurry passengers since injuries could result. Keep your vehicle steps clean and remember a simple “watch your step” may save a passenger from injury.
