Spinning Out of Control

There are many things that can cause a driver to lose control of a vehicle. Regardless of the cause, though, one of the most dangerous potential consequences of losing control is being thrown into a spin. It can be extremely difficult to regain control of a spinning, car and the risk of hitting another vehicle or obstacle as you careen across lanes of traffic is high.

In order to drive more safely and keep control of your vehicle, it is helpful to know some of the things that can cause your car to spin out and some of the ways to actively avoid spins.

Causes of Spins

Anything that affects your car’s responsiveness or stability has the potential to throw your car into a dangerous spin. Some examples are:

  • Tire blowouts
  • Icy roads
  • Collisions
  • Hydroplaning
  • Road defects

Avoiding Spins

Precautions for avoiding spins, even in the presence of the risks above, include:

  • Controlling speed
  • Properly inflating tires
  • Avoiding over steering
  • Avoiding hard braking
  • Slowing down on wet roads

If your car does start to spin, avoid over compensating or slamming on your brakes, and gently steer into the spin.
