Sliding To Perfection

Have you been on a slick icy road before? If so, there is a good chance that you have encountered a slide. There are a few different ways to avoid sliding during these occasions. You need avoid hitting your brakes, turn into the slide, stay calm, and try not to over correct.

The number one mistake most people make while sliding on ice is slamming on brakes. Hitting your brakes can cause you to lose control and to spin out. Instead of hitting your brakes, take your foot off the gas and turn into the slide. If your rear tires are sliding out to the right, turn your steering wheel in the same direction at a stead speed.

When are in the middle of a slide, it is best that you remain calm so you don't over correct. Over correcting occurs when you turn into the slide too fast or too much because of the sudden panic.
