Had my driving instincts checked today...
Driving to lunch and I sped up to make it through a green light turning left at an intersection. I was talking on the phone with my left hand and my right hand was on the wheel. I wasn't going *that* fast so I guess I drove over some gravel or something. Anyway, the rear end came loose and I had countersteer to avoid spinning out, all while not expecting it and talking in the phone.
Even though I ended up going the way I intended to go just as if I had been trying to show off, it was still scary. I dont even use the phone that much in the car, so it was just bad timing. Im just glad I didnt wipe out. Maybe pushing my car to the limits in autocross a few times helped prepare me for the situation and how to handle it by reflex?
