force is the force of a body in motion which tends to keep
it continuing in the same direction rather than following
a curved path. This force pulls your vehicle towards the
edge of the road when you are driving on a curve.
If you brake hard it is easy to skid
on a curve. When your tires are skidding you loose the ability
to steer, so slow down before you enter a curve. Many times
there isn't a posted speed limit for curves. Rain, snow,
dirt or gravel can make curves very slippery so judge the
curve and slow down if necessary.
collision involved a car driving too fast for the roadway
conditions. It was in a residential area along a poorly
banked sharp curve. The driver braked, then slid into the
outside curb. The vehicle then headed for the median where
it hit a tree. At impact the driver was forced out of the
car and a passenger was mistaken for the driver during the
police investigation. The animation and investigation was
so powerful the investigating officer's changed their initial
opinions regarding who was driving. The animation and was
later featured on a television series featuring accident
investigation and reconstruction.
