Hit 200,000 Miles and almost Caused a Serious Accident

The Honda rolled to 200,000 miles today!

About the accident, today I did some exploring driving on a road I had never been on before, it is raining, the speed limit is 45 and I'm doing 50(first mistake). I'm driving down the road and the road goes up some while curving somewhat sharply to the right and mid way through the turn the road goes down again. (second mistake: I didn't slow down for the turn) I go through the turn and right as I get around the turn I see a STOP sign. I locked my brakes up, I knew I was going to skid right out into on coming traffic, if the road was dry I would have been ok, but it was wet and I didn't have enough room to stop. And holy s. there are cars coming. So I cut the wheel to the right and got the car side ways and floored it, I slid right into the road infront of the car I figured I would run into. It was very scary, I can't even imagine what it must have looked like from some of the other drivers point of view. I'm very lucky I didn't get anyone or myself injured or killed, lesson learned. Take extra precautions when you drive on roads that aren't dry.

Road conditions

Wet roads with a little oil or antifreeze on it will make for a slippery condition as will slightly worn tires. Glad to hear you avoided the possible accident.
