When operating a vehicle on the road, it's important to know the different types of steering to keep you safe while driving. It is common to either oversteer or understeer while turning, which can become very dangerous, so it's a wise idea to learn the differences between the two.

If a vehicle turns or steers at an amount greater than commanded by the driver, this is called an oversteer. An oversteer can cause sharper turns by your vehicle, resulting in early turns that could potentially turn the vehicle before the desired lane or cause the vehicle to spin out of control from the driver.

If a vehicle turns or steers at an amount less than commanded by the driver, this is called an understeer. An understeer can cause wider turns by your vehicle, resulting in entering a lane further outside than desired or veering to the side of the road.
