Tips to Reduce Your Chances of Skidding

If you're going to be driving on icy or snowy roads in Caldwell this winter, it is important that your tires have sufficient depth. It is also important that you drive at a reasonable speed. When coming to a curve or bend in the road, be sure to do so slowly so that you won't have to hit the brake.

In the event that your car does start to slide, make sure that you don't panic. Panicking can increase the chances that you slam on the brake on make another mistake that could make the situation worse.

Typically, all you need to do is steer the same direction that the car is moving. This will allow the tires to regain traction with the road and stop the slide. In some cases, it may be enough to take your foot off the accelerator until the car stops skidding.
