On a snow-covered or frozenOn a snow-covered or frozen  - Operation under adverse driving conditions - For emergencies - Mitsubishi Lancer Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Lancer

► When driving on a snow-covered or frozen road, it is recommended that you use snow tyres or tyre chains. Refer to the “Snow tyres” and “Tyre chains” sections.

► Avoid high-speed operation, sudden acceleration, abrupt brake application and sharp cornering.

► Depressing the brake pedal during travel on snowy or icy roads may cause tyre slippage and skidding. When traction between the tyres and the road is reduced the wheels may skid and the vehicle cannot readily be brought to a stop by conventional braking techniques. Braking will differ, depending upon whether you have anti-lock brake system (ABS). As your vehicle is equipped with ABS, brake by pressing the brake pedal hard, and keeping it pressed.

► Allow extra distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, and avoid sudden braking.

► Accumulation of ice on the braking system can cause the wheels to lock. Pull away from a standstill slowly after confirming safety around the vehicle.

► Do not press the accelerator pedal rapidly. Caution

► Do not press the accelerator pedal rapidly.
If the wheels break free of the ice, the vehicle could suddenly start moving and possibly cause an accident.
