“They were stunned, they were terrified, they panicked.” (48:6)
In my day, driver’s training taught that if the car goes into a skid, we take our foot off the brake and pump the brakes gently, steering in the direction into the skid. I needed to unlearn this behavior when I bought a car with anti-lock brakes and learn instead to steadily keep my foot on the brake. The goal of driver’s training is to prepare us to make split-second decisions correctly so we won’t panic and freeze. There is no way to prepare for every unexpected event, but we can remember to breathe and calmly think our way out of the situation.
