2. Avoid hard braking and overly aggressive steering

If you see raindrops splashing on the surface of the road or if you are forced to drive through a puddle or standing water, avoid hard braking and overly aggressive steering.


Explanation:

A skid can occur if one or more tires lose their grip on the road surface. Skids often occur on slippery surfaces, such as wet, cold, snow-covered roads, rocks, or other loose material.

Many skids result from very fast driving in road conditions. Tightening the brakes and overcharging or speeding can cause your car to slip and possibly get out of control.
