Recovering from a Skid






What's the best way to avoid skidding? Avoid it in the first place. Drive smoothly and keep your speed down. If you do find yourself in a skid:

  • Focus on regaining control, remain calm and ease your foot off the gas.
  • Don't turn against the direction of the skid. Turn into the direction of the skid, known as "steering into the skid," will bring the back end of your car in line with the front.
  • Don't apply the brakes. This will only make your skid worse, unless your vehicle is equiped with ABS. Most newer cars are equipped with ABS. If so ,brake firmly as you "steer into the skid."
