A car moving on a horizontal road may be thrown out of the road is taking a turn (a) by the gravitational force (b) due to the lack of proper centripetal force (c) due to the lack of frictional force between the tire and the road (d) due to the reaction of the ground

When an object takes a turn two forces come to act.
1. centripetal force
2. centrifugal force
Centripetal force acts inward (towards the centre of the circular turn). This is provided by the frictional force. When the speed is large, required centripetal force to stay in the circular path increases. But friction is unable to provide large centripetal force and hence the body is thrown outwards.
