How to Correct a Slide on Icy Roads

When there are icy roads, most people tend to stay away, but what about when you have to go? Perhaps it's a snow condition warning that turns into icy roads. If you don't have snow tires, weather alerts, and tough brakes, you could be in for a bad time. Icy roads can cause considerable problems because you may start to slide even at the slightest braking. If you think that you are going too fast, you can actually start sliding after speeds of 45 mph.

You'll have to correct your vehicle if you find yourself sliding. To do this, you can turn the steering wheel and direct the wheels into the slide. This will correct your wheels and straight them out, slowing you down considerably. You don't want to brake hard during this time, but you can just lightly press down on the brake pedal to bring the car to a stop.

You can test drive vehicles with top notch snow tires at Lakewood Happy Motors.
