Annually, there are over 100,000 injuries that occur from car
accidents on snowy or icy pavement. If you live in an area where snow is
a winter reality (roughly 70% of the U.S. population lives in areas
that average at least 5 inches of annual snow), then it’s vital to have
the skills necessary for driving safely in inclement conditions. One of
those skills is how to recover from a skid. The feeling of losing
control of one’s vehicle can be quite scary, and it’s easy to panic and
make the wrong moves if you don’t know what to do.
Below we outline the 5 most common types of skids on wintery
pavement, and how to recover when they happen. In general, if you stay
calm, restrain yourself from making drastic movements, and follow the
tips below, you’ll be able to safely travel the nation’s highways and
byways throughout the winter months.
