MILWAUKEE-Insurance agents and mechanics alike were offering plenty of tips when it comes to safe driving.

The advice came in the week of one of the most horrendous days on Wisconsin roadways in recent memory Sunday when several people were killed and dozens injured in a series of chain reaction crashes.

The experts tells CBS 58:

If you skid, do not panic, remain calm.

Remove your foot from the accelerator.

Do not slam on the brakes, instead pump the brakes.

Turn the wheel in the direction of the skid. If the back of the car is moving to the right, street the wheel to the right.
