What is with all the people doing a slow Scandinavian flick of sorts when taking a corner at slow to moderate speed?

Turning away from the corner before quickly turning into it is a Scandinavian flick.

It unsettles the car so a rally driver can hang the back out in the corner, straightening the car out so he can power out of the corner.

Lately I have been seeing people doing the same when approaching a corner, steering away from the corner before steering into it….why?


The cars I see doing it, are not going particularly fast, quite the opposite really.

It is not limited to larger cars, as small cars do it aswell, as if people are driving an articulated lorry.

Can anybody enlighten me?
