Here are steps to regain control of your vehicle if it slides on icy roads. As you do these, remember remain calm and not allow yourself to panic. A level-headed approach to your situation will enable you to make the best choices.

Begin adjusting your slide by steering your vehicle in the direction you want to go. Avoid hitting the brakes or suddenly accelerating since these approaches can intensify your descent and increase the chances of an accident. Instead, you should ease your foot from the accelerator pedal and guide it in the safest direction until you regain control.

If your vehicle is sliding backward, activate the hazard signals on your automobile and steer along the direction of the slide until you can recover the command.

If a moment comes when you need to press your brakes, do so gently and steadily, so your vehicle will not skid or spin out of control.
