Be aware of conditions. Hard-to-detect black ice is most likely to form when humidity is high, rain impending, and the temperature between 32 and 36 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep an eye on the thermometer and you won’t be caught off-guard.
Never oversteer. Seasoned drivers often turn into a skid when the rear wheels lose grip. “The better approach: Point the front wheels to where you want the car to travel.”
Don’t brake in a turn. If your front tires slide when you enter a turn, resist braking. Instead, “ease off the accelerator and the steering angle.” The key is to keep the wheels rolling freely.
Brake going downhill. If your car has anti-lock brakes, they’re most useful on ice when the car is pointed straight ahead. If the vehicle is sliding down a hill, hold the brake down and “steer smoothly.”
