October 20, 2023

Road Safety Reminder for the week of October 23-29, 2023

Skids on Slippery Surfaces

If you start to skid:

  • Ease off the accelerator (gas) pedal
  • Stop braking
  • Turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid

If you cannot control your vehicle on a slippery surface, try to find something to stop the skid. Try to get a wheel on dry pavement or on the shoulder of the road.

To prevent skidding on slippery surfaces:

  • Drive slowly and stay farther behind the vehicle ahead of you
  • Slow down as you approach curves and intersections
  • Avoid fast turns
  • Avoid quick stops. "Pump" the brakes to slow or stop (do not pump anti-lock brakes)
  • Shift to low gear before going down a steep hill
  • Avoid especially slippery areas wet leaves, oil, or deep puddles
