How would you explain the force that pushes a rider toward the side of a car as the car rounds a corner?

I always saw drivers moving toward side in corners, is there any reason in Physics?

There is no such force. If the passenger slides outward across the slippery car seat, it is because the passenger is moving forward in a straight line while the car is turning under him. If the passenger pushes hard against the outside door, the door is exerting an inward force on him. No object is exerting an outward force on him, but he should still buckle his seatbelt.
