Operating a Vehicle

Over-Correcting:

Over-correcting occurs when the driver turns the steering wheel more sharply than expected, causing the rear wheels of the vehicle to slide toward the outside of the turn.  This may result in the loss of vehicle control.  Most over-correction crashes are single vehicle crashes and are often preventable.  A driver should remain alert at all times.  Reduce speed and use extra caution while driving on curved roads.  If you veer off the road, curved or straight, do not panic.  Gradually reduce your speed, look in the direction you want to go, slowly steer back onto the roadway.
