How to Correct a Slide on Icy Roads

If you are driving and find your car is hydroplaning, as in sliding uncontrollably, then you need to slow down. The most common problem for cars that slide on icy roads and in snowy conditions is because they were going over 45 mph. Once you start going at these speeds, it's more difficult for your wheels to stop, especially if you don't have snow tires.

There are some vehicles that come with icy road alerts that will let you know when there is a problem. However, if you want to correct a slide, there's a really simple solution. You can just turn your wheels into the slide gently. You don't want to brake or over-correct during these conditions, as that might just cause over correction.
