Whenever I had a new (to me at least. Not necessarily new as in brand new) vehicle, when the first slippery conditions would occur for the season, I’d go to the lot of an abandoned business or closed park or whatever and do just that on their empty parking lot. Not go crazy (attracts too much of the wrong kind of attention) but enough so that I would get to know how the vehicle would react to my imputs.

FWIW my very first time behind the wheel (50 years ago) was the morning after an ice storm. Coach took us to a big parking lacking bumpers and poles and we all practiced spinning out and regaining control. Dunno if the kiddies today get similar lessons, the pampered darlings, but they should simply because such weather events do occur.

What "He-Man" Northern drivers fail to recognize about snow in the South is that with the milder temps in the South a snow event often begins as a rain event thus laying down a nice amount of water that becomes ice when the temp drops that then is covered by snow that creates challenging driving conditions. Then again maybe there are driving schools in the North that teach people how to drive a car on a Skating Rink.
