What do you do if your car is sliding on ice?

    • Rear-wheel skid: If your back wheels are the ones that have gone out on you, gently turn your wheel in the direction you are sliding while taking your foot off the accelerator – but do not brake.
    • Front-wheel skid: If your front wheels begin to slide, take your foot off the accelerator and allow the vehicle to slow. After a few seconds, if you still don’t have control of your vehicle, lightly press the brake (we’re talking one toe, here).
