I've seen some crazy ass accident reconstructions of people who merely drift onto a soft shoulder. A perfectly survivable incident. But they jerk the steering wheel back towards the travel lanes. The over correction leads to a counter over correction and within a few micro seconds, you have a vehicle oscillating wildly back and forth across the travel lanes until it leaves the roadway permanently, collides with another vehicle or flips over.
It's common as dirt and is especially a problem in vehicles with soft suspensions or lots of suspension travel. Pickup trucks are the worst.
Yep I sometimes will drift into the shoulder I always ease it back on especially with my rig.
