How to Correct a Slide on Icy Roads

Have you ever been driving on icy roads when your vehicle started to go out of control? This is called fishtailing, hydroplaning, or sliding. With icy roads, you have to be extra careful in snowy conditions. Icy roads can cause a vehicle's wheels to get stuck and slide together. While you may want to brake, if you press down too hard, you could be causing even more issues.

Snowy conditions also cause problems for tires that are older. You should always have snow tires or updated tires in order to drive on icy roads. You want tires that won't slip and will easily grip the road even when on ice. In addition, you can use all-wheel drive vehicles to ensure that your vehicle slows without putting too much pressure on the front or rear axle.
