How to Correct a Slide in Snowy Conditions and Icy Roads

Many people have experienced hydroplaning and sliding, especially in snowy conditions. If you are headed out in the cold, then you should know that icy roads are always a possibility. With icy roads, you have to be careful not to go too fast. It's recommended that you stay under 45 mph once you start to notice weather alerts and signs for icy roads. If you notice that it's snowy out, you should keep to a slower speed and be ready to calmly turn your steering wheel into the slide if you feel your wheels locking.

The last thing you want to do is over-correct the steering wheel or brake hard, as this will cause more issues. If you are in a lot of traffic, then you'll have to remain calm and keep a slow pace until you can get off the road if you continue to hydroplane. Snow tires and all-wheel drive can be greatly beneficial for drivers in icy conditions.

You can test drive with snow tires at LCM Used Car Center located in East Petersburg, PA.
