Nokian has been producing the safest and best performing winter tires that money can buy for decades. With roots dating back to 1932, safety has always been a top priority for Nokian.
Even with expensive snow tires, there are still many things that the average motorist might not know about safety when it comes to winter driving. The Hakkapeliitta Driving School is an excellent resource for all types of driver. Whether you're a novice, intermediate or expert driver, you are sure to learn something new at the Hakkapeliitta Driving School.
The Winter Driving School provides instructions for setting up your car in the winter, and for surviving different driving conditions, on icy roads as well as during snowfall or freezing weather. Speed is very important, for example. When driving on slippery roads, you should remember that doubling your speed will quadruple your braking distance, says Matti Morri, Technical Customer Service Manager from Nokian Tyres.
The Winter Driving School illustrates information through videos and texts. Finally, it allows you to test your knowledge of winter driving with a quiz. Even those who feel confident as winter drivers should visit the site and see if their knowledge is still up to date. The Winter Driving School will be available in English, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, and Finnish.
Winter tires have a tendency to give the driver overconfidence of the vehicle's abilities. It is a good idea to test the vehicle's response during inclement weather in a controlled environment. Knowing the limits of your vehicle will allow the driver to adequately adjust their driving habits during winter weather, thus making them a much safer driver.
