Clair,

Your car in a spin story is good but please substitute "regain" for
"maintain."  As you said, you were in a spin so violent you got seatbelt
bruises.

During that spin, isn't it true that you didn't "maintain" control?  Yet, as
you say, you were in the driver's seat and able to "regain" control, thus
keeping out of the deep ditches.  

And, going into deep ditches in the middle of the winter, particularly with
no seat belts could well have had a very unpleasant outcome.
