While it's a well known fact that getting off the gas with your knee down is evil and is begging for a spectacular high-side, just how bad is it when the road is wet or otherwise slippery (ice?), your rear tire starts spinning and going cock-eyed, and you get off the gas?
I've had it a few times at slow speeds where I'm coming out of a driveway or turning onto another street when the rear starts sliding and I get off the gas. Seems to me it's the right thing to do or I'd be on my ass, but maybe I'm wrong.
So the question is, when is it OK to get off the gas when the rear starts sliding? Is it never OK, even at slow speeds? Or at slow speeds is it perfectly acceptable to let off when the rear starts spinning/sliding, and the rule to stay on the gas only applies at high speeds?
