Tips to Prevent Skidding on Icy Roads

If your vehicle has ever skid out of control on an icy road, you know how terrifying of an experience it can be. Most of our instinctive reactions, such as braking, can actually make the situation worse. The following are a few tips that will help you prevent skidding on icy roads.

One safety measure you should take is to make sure that you are leaving plenty of space between you and the car ahead of you. This will allow you plenty of time to react if the driver in front of you suddenly stops. Stopping in a sudden manner can cause you to skid.

Another safety measure that will help you avoid skidding on an icy road is to slow down before entering a curve or bend. If you take a curve too quickly or brake suddenly while going around a bend, your vehicle will most likely skid out of control.
