How to gain control of a spinning car
I do not like driving, particulary on highways or any road with more than two lanes. Trucks make my heart race and watching cars snake and weave through rushing traffic causes my blood to boil.
I am not a violent person, but I have had more than one fantasy of using a flare gun to force drivers tailing too close behind me off the road.
But driving is a necessity, so to minimize the chances of killing myself or hurting others on slippery roads I signed up for Skid School in Oakville.
Here is the link to the story and video for the Star.
On a controlled course - where I learned to recover a car skidding out on the snow - it was almost too fun to focus on learning.
I still expect sweaty palms the next time I am sandwiched between two trucks. But I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants a little extra confidence on the road.
