How to Correct a Slide on Icy Roads

If you are sliding and fishtailing, you are likely on an icy road in snowy conditions. Icy roads can be dangerous for any vehicle going over 45 mph. That's why it is so important to slow down and maintain your speed when you find yourself on an icy road. Since hydroplaning can be really nerve-racking, you should also make sure to maintain your peace of mind and gently brake as you turn into the slide.

Turning your car's wheels into the slide will help to correct the course of your wheels. It's important that you stay calm and only turn slightly into the turn rather than turning hard and heading into the other lane. If you have problems with over-correction, then you should take extra care to pay attention to rearview cameras and blind spot monitoring as you drive.
