Article excerpt: Finding your vehicle going into a skid, an event that takes control of the automobile away from you as the driver, is one of most frightening driving experiences.  At the moment a skid begins it is as if the vehicle takes on a mind of its own and is no longer responsive to the commands of the driver. The natural inclination and response is an immediate feeling of panic. However, it should be remembered that keeping a calm approach at such a time is important in order to regain control the situation.
