    Serious question? Get off the gas, don't hit the brake, turn the wheel in the direction the back end is sliding, but don't turn so hard that you over-correct afterwards...let the wheel sort of straighten out by itself or with as little input from you as possible.

    Make sure she doesn't clamp down with her teeth and consider throwing the joint out.

    Rear wheel drive car - foot off gas and turn out of the skid.

    Front wheel drive - accelerate slightly and pull yourself out of the skid.

    Larry, Inc only travels with full police escorts. In this situation the snow plows and salt trucks would be leading the way. Plus @LawyerLarry has more protection than the president. @tradioguy69 is an experienced chopper pilot and is our eyes in the sky. Meanwhile poor @zombiebutt is the DD for the trail car that contains myself, @ljc, and @MrPPV.

    Put the phone down dickhead, slow the fuck down and stop driving like such an asshole. If you live in a area that it gets really shitty in the winter you should have an AWD or 4X4 car/truck anyways.

    It may seem counterintuitive but don't brake nor gas it and just kind of go with the flow, adjusting the wheel as needed to straighten out.

    If you find yourself going off the road, but there are no guard rails or poles or anything that can damage your car, kind of sidle on at a slight angle and gas it just enough so you don't get stuck.

    I've driven plenty a winter on bald tires. It makes life more interesting.

    I live in a really snowy place and would say the median vehicle is a basic midsize sedan, like a Chrysler 200. The towns use salt on the roads, which clears them up really quick ... although it rusts the cars out, too.

    Finish your text, apply emergency brake while shifting into reverse, and hit the hood release.

    My car is front wheel drive and I usually feather the brake if I need to move the car in a bit of a slide.
