A snow storm hit the East Coast on Tuesday, coating the roads with a mix of sleet and ice.


Although the most intense parts of the storm have shifted away from cities like New York and Philadelphia, most forms of mass transit have been suspended as road conditions worsen throughout the day.

It's best to avoid driving in a snowstorm. However, if there is an emergency situation where you must drive, there are ways to do it safely.

A few weeks ago, I drove a Chevy Cruze slalom-style in the snow up in Connecticut as part of a driving class with Chevrolet. My driving instructor, Pat Daly, shared some tips for those times where you have to drive in snow.
