Winter roads can be a menacing feat, especially when they are slick with snow and ice. A spin or slide is inevitable during the winter, so you should have a few tips in your mental arsenal to be prepared for this frightening driving event.

The first thing you should do when experiencing a sliding vehicle on icy roads is to take a deep breath and remain calm. The worst thing you can do is panic and overcorrect, turning a simple slide on icy roads into an unrecoverable spinning accident. Once you've calmed yourself, be sure to keep your foot off the brake, as this can also exacerbate the event.

The only action you should take while sliding on icy roads is to turn your steering wheel in the direction the rear tires are sliding. If your tires are spinning out to the right, turn the wheel to the right to correct the wheels and regain control of the vehicle.
