How to Correct a Slide on an Icy Road

When cars are on icy roads, extra precaution has to be paid to speed and braking. You'll have to carefully drive these roads at speeds under 45 mph in order to prevent hydroplaning. In addition, snow tires and all-wheel drive can help make icy roads easy to navigate. However, if you find yourself already in a sliding situation, you can try to correct your tires.

The first thing you should do is slow down. You don't want to brake hard, but you should gently press down and turn your wheels into the slide. This will cause your wheels to correct and start to move in the targeted direction. As you turn your wheels, make sure that you don't accelerate or this could cause further danger.
