In a skid, the most important vehicle control device is

A the steering wheel.

If you start to skid, stay calm, ease your foot off the gas pedal, and carefully steer in the direction in which you want the front of your vehicle to go. Avoid braking, especially if your vehicle is not equipped with antilock brakes (ABS). Your vehicle may overshoot and start to skid in the opposite direction. To prevent this from happening, turn the steering wheel the other way as soon as your vehicle starts to straighten out. Once the vehicle is back under your control, straighten the wheels.
