Rear drive cars weight over rear axle If stuck, rock car gently. Do not spin in one place. Use traction mat or kitty litter if necessary On hill, consider putting two wheels on edge of roadway Use inertia Use highest gear possible If wheels start to spin on hill, ease off throttle, then resume speed If rear wheels skid, turn steering wheel in direction of skid. LOOK WHERE YOU WANT THE VEHICLE TO GO Consider turning traction control off BRAKING TIPS
