For the first time in my years of driving, I slid pretty badly the other day. I've slid before a little bit, but this is the first time I slid badly-- I nearly went off the road.
Granted, it was raining and because a lot of pressure was on me at the time, I was foolishly going faster than I ought to have been around a pretty sharply curving highway entrance ramp. I wasn't surprised that I slid, and nothing ended up happening, but frankly it felt like I slid further than I ought to have, and that's never happened before to that extent. It made me wonder if maybe my tires were losing traction.
How would I know?
