People can lose control of their cars for all sorts of reasons, but losing control puts you and others around you in danger. Yes, you may have to dodge an obstacle or debris but it must be done in as safe of a manner as possible.
One thing that can help you is to take a defensive driving course. Going beyond basic driver’s education, these schools can teach you what to do when an emergency happens and how to position your car to keep you and others safe.
Following the rules and practicing safe driving will also help you should you ever get involved in an accident. By following the rules, you may be able to reduce how liable you might be in an accident.
