Icy Road Driving - How to Correct a Rear Wheel Slide

There are some things you can do to prevent a rear wheel slide, such as traveling 45 miles per hour at a safe distance behind a car or getting snow tires. When the snow falls or there is a really bad storm approaching and ice develops on the roads, the information that we at Autosaver Imports give you will become extremely useful.

When your car starts to slide, calm down for a moment and think clearly. It is easier said than done. Take your foot off the gas pedal and shift the transmission into the lowest gear in order to slow down. Grab the wheel gently and turn it in the same area the rear is sliding. Never press on the breaks to stop because that will continue the slide. If you know a crash is inevitable, try to plow in an area that causes less damage, such as a snow bank.
