How to Correct a Slide on Icy Road

Sliding or fishtailing as it's called means that you are probably driving at the wrong speed. When you go too fast, your car's tires will start to turn on their own, causing you to spin. It's important that you keep to a speed under 45 mph. If this happens to you, you don't want to hit your brakes, as this can cause your car to slide more.

You can turn into the slide in order to straighten your car wheels. However, you want to turn carefully as overcorrecting will also cause problems. This can typically send your car into a harder spin if you turn too hard.

If you really want to prevent sliding, then you should get the right tires for your vehicle. Sliding during icy, snow seasons can be prevented with snow tires. In addition, you may want to get an all-wheel drive vehicle. You can test new vehicles and get snow tires at Bedard Bros. Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
