5 Defensive Driving Techniques That Should Be Memorized Once and for All

Posted on

3 types of drifting

  1. Sliding: the front axis is stable, the rear one slide, the car turns more than expected.
  2. Drift: the rear wheels are stable, the front ones slide, the car moves forward when turning.
  3. Full destabilization: all four wheels slide, the direction of movement is unpredictable.

How to regain control

If your car starts drifting, don’t hit the brake pedal.

If your car is rear-wheeled, pull back on the throttle and turn your wheel in the direction of the drift.

If your car is front-wheeled, pull the throttle up.

Once the car is out of the drift, immediately turn the wheel to its initial “front” position, or a new drift will start.
