vehicle skids are most likely to be caused by
A) Air pressure in tires too high
B) driving too fast on a slippery road
C) Driving too fast on slipping road
D) Air pressure in tires too low
C) Driving too fast on a slippery road
Explanation: When a vehicle skids, it means that the tires have lost traction with the road surface, and the vehicle is sliding uncontrollably. Driving too fast on a slippery road is a common cause of skidding. Here's why:
The other options (A and D) relate to air pressure in tires. While improper tire pressure can affect the handling of a vehicle, it is not the primary cause of skidding. High or low tire pressure can influence the contact patch between the tires and the road, affecting traction, but driving too fast on a slippery road is a more direct and immediate cause of skidding in such conditions.
