2.19.3 – Front-wheel Skids Driving too fast for conditions causes most front- wheel skids. Other causes include lack of tread on the front tires and cargo loaded so not enough weight is on the front axle. Ina front-wheel skid, the front end tends to go in a straight line regardless of how much you turn the steering wheel. On a very slippery surface, you may not be able to steer around a curve or turn. When a front-wheel skid occurs, the only way to stop the skid is to let the vehicle slowdown. Stop turning and/or braking so hard. Slowdown as quickly as possible without skidding.
