    Demonstration on how to avoid skidding on icy roads by America's National Safety Council.

  • Description

    Titles read: "SKIDS ON ICE TEACH SAFETY".

    Clintonville, Wisconsin, United States of America.

    Several shots of a car skidding about while driving over Pine Lake as part of a demonstration by America's National Safety Council. C/U of the driver's feet show him braking hard. The car skids round several times. On another demonstration he goes through a barrier while skidding.
