On a snow-covered or frozen roadOn a snow-covered or frozen road  - Operation under adverse driving conditions - For emergencies - Mitsubishi Carisma Owner's Manual - Mitsubishi Carisma

(1) 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.
(2) Avoid high–speed operation, sudden acceleration, abrupt brake application and sharp cornering.
(3) Depressing the brake pedal during travel on such a road 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 brakes (ABS). If you do have ABS, brake by pressing the brake pedal hard, and keeping it pressed. If you do not have ABS, pump the brake pedal with short rapid jabs, each time fully applying and fully releasing for greatest effect.
(4) Allow extra distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you, and avoid sudden braking.
