How to Correct a Slide on Icy Roads

When your car starts to get out of control on an icy road, you are probably driving in snowy conditions. The most important thing to remember is that you don't brake too hard or accelerate while you are hydroplaning. You gently want to slow down the vehicle while turning into the slide. As you turn into the slide, you'll notice that your car's wheels will try to overcorrect and stop the vehicle.

It's important that you don't over-correct as well. This could cause you to spin or even flip your vehicle. As you slide, keep a steady slow pace and wait for the moment to turn into the slide. If you are in a lot of traffic, make sure that you remain calm and drive as slow as you can without being a nuisance.

You can test drive the latest vehicles with snow tires and all-wheel drive at Autoline of VA located in Chantilly, VA.
