You know CNN guys Sweden's not doing a whole lot -- but that's not why you're here and thanks for playing along -- talking about. Driving in in winter wetter weather wet in if you hit a patch of ice conditions so. Help us out if you will -- live there from Quebec and let us know what we should or should not do. Yep that's the first thing and that that's what being in them scare you about the what are you guys are getting. Your cars are probably not prepared for that term winner.

Just small bow before you hit the patched but if you do -- needed -- -- you would suggest that this speed. The first thing and I moved to the sounds stupid don't -- can just look where you wanna go. Do as a regional -- you can. And tried to -- years straight as straight as you can and don't adjust the speed don't accelerate don't slow down. Just keep it steady pace through VI dispatched.

So -- -- into this might turn into the open in the corner and then he told -- what you're driving if you regular front wheel drive car. It it's imagine that different it's carrying the back of the car so it just like you're you have a trader at the back. In the -- one dot com your home you're gonna accelerate slightly so we stayed back. It's going to be this same with a card. So here in the opposite direction and actually -- the and different gonna catch the back that is where -- would drive. If you drive it was. Right or -- will -- it is slightly different and this. This is the scary part like you get the -- the chance to practice that and I don't know there's a lot of racetracks around. By in Quebec right now we're -- putting a lot of them facets to tell people. -- and tried it before you're on the world for the first time you lose control. Everybody panics like it is just a normal reactions to people hold the steering wheel real tight -- did you panic wall.
