Common Mistakes Offroad: Not Knowing Where You're Steering
When driving offroad, often the feeling of steering can be greatly reduced, sometimes to the point of not knowing where your wheels are pointed until you’ve started sliding in the wrong direction!
Many times this happens in a muddy or slushy situation where the car can become slippery on the track, however we have seen this happen on sand on the beach as well.
A good idea can be to quickly lean out the window and check the direction of your wheels and tyres (if it is safe to do so). You can also have a spotter outside the vehicle tell you which way the wheels are pointed.
