This could save your life

If you live in a part of the country where snow is a regular thing during the winter, do yourself a favor and find a large, open parking lot the next time you get an inch or two. Drive up there, and practice inducing spins and then steering out of them. At minimum, half an hour of this is good, but ideally you should do it until it becomes second nature for either direction at most any speeds. It's a lot more helpful than reading a description of how to do so.


  1. I live in a very cold and snow-filled part of the United States, and must say that learning to drive in icy conditions is essential. I agree an empty parking lot is good practice to get the steering down. When you fishtail on the street due to ice, it's good to have the proper steering motions memorized!

  2. I do this all the time just for the fun of it.
