Recovery, Path of Least Resistance

Paths of Least Resistance (Continued)

Say, for example, your vehicle is sliding off the road and headed for a culvert. Avoiding the edge of the culvert will keep your vehicle from tripping and rolling over. To do so you have to impact a fence or some bushes. You would probubly do better to hit those objects than the culvert.

If you have impacted one object or vehicle, your vehicle may still be moving and headed or another impact. Your alertness and ability to control your vehicle may allow you to avoid or reduce the impact of this next collision. Say, the second collision involves avoiding a head-on collision. Being able to redirect your vehicle and sideswipe the other car can significantly reduce the severity of the impact.
