Car loses control on slippery road risking fatal crash – but this man saves the day

Snow, a wonderful thing that makes winter a bit less dark and therefore, a bit more fun. Kids love to go out and build snowmen, toss snowballs at each other and even slide down small slopes on a sled. For adults, however, a very difficult part that comes with snow is the dangers of the road.

Driving on an icy road can prove fatal with a single mistake, nothing is more stressful than driving knowing you can lose control of the car at any moment. Best-case scenario you wait until the vehicle stops moving, worst-case scenario you put yours and others’ lives at risk.
