  1. under steeris the tendency of a vehicle to steer into a SHARPER turn than the driver intends, sometimes with a loss of traction of the rear to the outside

  33. the ____________ should rest on the rim of the steering wheel and never hold the wheel too tightthumb

          

  34. holding the steering wheel too tight will cause the driver totire more quickly

          

  35. Immobilization Technique (PIT)the purpose of this technique is to stop a violator's vehicle by using the police vehicle to apply force to either the rear right or left side of the violator's vehicle to end the pursuit.
