Skidding to a halt

Skidding to a halt

Definition: Sliding across the ground before stopping at a certain spot abruptly.

Etymology: Probably came from the word skid.

The driver was driving his car when he saw a cat on the road. He jammed on his brakes before skidding to a halt, just inches away from the cat.
