Any road that is safe under normal conditions can be
dangerous when it is wet or has snow or ice on it. High
speeds, under normal conditions, also increase the
possibility of a skid if you turn or stop suddenly. Skids are
caused when the tires can no longer grip the road. Because
you cannot control a vehicle when it is skidding, it is best

to avoid skidding in the frst place. Skids are caused by

drivers traveling too fast for conditions.

If your vehicle begins to skid:
Stay off the brake. Until the
vehicle slows, your brakes will
not work and could cause you to
skid more.
Steer. Turn the steering wheel
in the direction you want the
vehicle to go. As soon as the
vehicle begins to straighten out,
turn the steering wheel back the
other way. If you do not do so,
your vehicle may swing around
in the other direction and you
could start a new skid.
Continue to steer. Continue to
correct your steering, left and
right, until the vehicle is again
moving down the road under
your control.
