This 15 minute video was shot on location in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where winter driving is a challenge - Driving Snow is an excellent refresher for experienced drivers and a must for the winter-driving novice.
Driving Snow provides vital information on safe speed, ABS, tires, skid control, stopping, winter road hazards, four wheel drive over-confidence, front wheel drive, visibility, emergency equipment, traction, headlights, downshifting, passing, alcohol, wildlife, and getting unstuck. A fast-paced combination of narration, commentary by winter driving experts, animation, and demonstrations of problems and solutions, Driving Snow is as interesting as it is educational. Produced in response to a series of tragic winter accidents in Jackson Hole, the film was initially distributed to PBS stations in 27 states, played at the Jackson Hole Airport and on local cable TV in winter months. It has been used by driving ed instructors, corporate trainers, US military educators and individuals in the United States and Canada. When it first played in Jackson Hole in the middle 90's the Jackson Police Chief said that "it eliminated the tragic headlines." Driving Snow has been seen in Alaska's Inuit villages, US Airforce bases in Greenland and in scientific outposts in Antarctica.
