The driver first turns the wheel normally for the car to turn through a curve.

The driver then notices that the rear wheels are losing their grip and gliding to the left, which the driver tries to compensate for by turning the wheel to the left instead of the right (so that the front wheels of the car also go to the left, in the hope of straightening up the car to regain control).

However, the grip is too poor and the rear-wheel slide continues.

Note that the red wheels always point in the direction of the road, which is desirable. If the driver had kept turning the wheel to the right in the beginning, the car would have spun much faster and harder.
