When approaching a curve or an intersection where you intend to turn, slow down before you start to turn the steering wheel. When the steering wheels are turned on a slippery road surface they slide sideways. When the steering wheels slide, there is less traction on the road surface and the steering wheels can lock up at lower speeds during a brake application. To direct the vehicle in the intended direction and not end up in a slide off the road, release the brake application. Releasing the brake application before steering allows a better chance to maintain traction. This practice can be used on dry roads as well as slippery roads. Slow down before you turn.
