What is countersteering?

A Turning the wheel back in the other direction after steering to avoid a hazard
Explaination
In a quick turning maneuver such as recovering from a drive-wheel braking skid or moving from the shoulder onto the roadway at a higher speed, your vehicle will tend to overshoot and keep turning in the same direction more than you want it to. Be ready to counteract this by turning your steering wheel in the opposite direction. This is known as countersteering.
B Steering in the opposite direction from what other drivers expect you to
C Turning the wheel in a counterclockwise fashion
