If you notice a car slide, it implies that you are over speeding for the conditions. Driving at a safe speed on icy and snowy road (45mph / 70km/h or less) and avoid abrupt braking, acceleration or turns, you will be safe and not worry about corrections, prevention they say is better than cure. Over speeding makes it more difficult to correct a slide. Most car slides while driving at a speed of above 45mph (70km/h) require fast and accurate steering to correct, and can be difficult for most drivers to manage successfully. Over-steer and under-steer are two types of slides that can occur on icy roads, and over-steer causes the most accidents. Here, we will focus on tips to help you correct over-steer slide. Note that slide car 24 hours (รถสไลด์24ชั่วโมง, which is the term in Thai) are always ready to come to your rescue.

Don’t Hit Your Brakes

No, you don’t want to hit the brakes! You will only end up triggering slides and make existing slide worse. Your wheels need to be turning freely for slide correction to work, so avoid using the brakes.

Turn into the Slide

To correct a Slide car (รถสไลด์, which is the term in Thai) your front wheels should be turned in the same direction that the back of the vehicle slides to. For example, if the rear of your car slides to the left, turn the wheel to the left. Then straighten the steering wheel as the car straightens out. Always endeavour to keep your eyes focused on the road ahead where you want the car to go.

The rate at which you’ll need to turn the wheel depends on how quick the rear of your car slides. A big slide will require a fast steering motion while a small slide requires a slight steer.

Stay Calm. Don’t panic

An over-steer slide will cause an angular momentum for your car and can keep it rotating into a full spin. It is important not to panic as overcorrecting can cause the car to rotate faster than steering can manage, and in turn, the car will spin out.
