Most cars are going to have ABS so it's best advice that can be given to unskilled masses. Like I said many people have difficulty with the steering part let alone throwing the accelerator into the mix.

abs only works when you have traction and not in a slide for the most part . abs can't pull you out of the skid once the car breaks away

If the bakes are locked steering is not possible slippery or dry conditions. Whether you are going straight, in a skid or coming out of skid you have better control.



The accelerator can certainly be beneficial in skid but once again telling someone to do this is completely different than real world application. People panic in unfamiliar situations like this and telling them to do something that is opposite their instincts and requires experience to execute properly is probably not a good idea.
