For Florida drivers traveling across icy roads this holiday season, Orlando
personal injury attorney Carolyn Salzmann reminds drivers how to react
if those rear wheels skid. We want to help you
If your rear wheels skid…
- Take your foot off the accelerator.
- Steer in the direction you want the front wheels to go.
- If your rear wheels start sliding the other way as you recover, you might
have to steer left and right a few times to get your vehicle completely
- If you have anti-lock brakes (ABS), do not pump the brakes. Apply steady
pressure to the brakes. You will feel the brakes pulse, but this is normal
as you regain control.
And no matter where you travel this holiday season,
Legally Pink Law can represent you in the case of an auto accident. Attorney and engineer
Carolyn Salzmann knows the biomechanics of auto injury, and she will work
hard to get you the highest compensation possible for your personal injury claim.
