    ''While'' question

    ''Driving to Litchfield, the freezing rain made the
    road slippery and hazardous.''

    The correct acting to this sentence is ''while we drove to Lichfield''. But may I use a past tense with ''while'' or a continuos tense would bring just a better correction?

    Re: ''While'' question


    IMO, a continuous would fit in better here: "While (we were) driving to Lichfield, the freezing rain made the road slippery and hazardous".

    Please be aware that I'm neither a native English speaker nor a teacher.
