Correcting Your Car From Sliding On Icy Roads

We have all seen the effects of cars sliding out of control on icy roads on the news. Things can get very dangerous when large vehicles are no longer in the control of the drivers. You will be one of the people who will know exactly what to do to stop your car from sliding during these conditions.

The first thing you need to do when you feel that rear wheel sliding in a certain direction is calm your nerves. We know this is very hard to do because something completely unexpected is happening; however, you need to visualize something that makes you think clearly.

Once you recognize that the slide happening, steer the wheel gently in the same direction. Whatever you do, never put your foot on those brakes. That will only make things worse. If you need more information about how to prevent sliding in the winter, contact us at Earthycars in Williston.
