Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta SHOM? Advice To the Minnesota or Manito- ba motorist, a two-inch snow- fall may be a common winter- time driving nuisance. When that same storm makes an in- frequent appearance in places where winters are usually mild, a s n a r 1 of gigantic pro- portions usually results. For those drivers who don't know how to handle their car in snowy weather and as a re- fresher to cold-country car owners, the National Safety Council offers these tips: 1. Test the road with care- ful acceleration when first starting out. If the wheels spin or you skid when braking re- duce your speed. 2. Keep double the normal distance between you and the car ahead. Stopping distances may be as much as nine times greater than on a dry pave- ment. 3. When stopping, pump your brakes instead of jamming them. 4. Make sure your tires have plenty of tread. Snow tires and, in states where they are per- .mitted, studded tires help stop cars safely and deter skidding. Reinforced chains may be the answer where snow is in- frequent, enough to negate the reasons for purchasing winter tires. How Much To Operate Your Auto? How much does it cost you to operate your car? It depends on where you live, and how much mileage you ac- cumulate during the year. One of the nation's top management consulting firms, Runzheimer and Op., Inc. of Rochester, Wisconsin, figured out costs in 10 North American localities, especially for this paper. Of the areas included in the study, motorists in El Paso spend the least or 7.11 cents per mile to run their cars. Con- versely car owners in Halifax, Nova Scotia spend the most or 8.26 cents per mile. Here's how Runzheimer rates the 10 geographically diverse areas.
