4 Tips for Driving Safely in Heavy Wind and Rain
Wind may seem like a minor risk, but this weather condition deserves special consideration from drivers. Strong wind can occur just about anywhere, but it can be more common in wide open spaces. Areas for concern also include highway overpasses, tunnels and ‘road cuts’ through mountainous areas that can act as funnels for wind. The following tips can help keep you on the road and safe if you encounter heavy winds.
- 1. Anticipate gusts. Take special care when driving through areas prone to strong winds or when weather reports predict severe weather.
- 2. Notice larger vehicles. Be aware of large vehicles on the road such as tractor-trailers and recreational vehicles. They are more susceptible to high winds and drivers may have difficulties staying in their lanes.
- 3. Keep a firm grip on the wheel. Keep both hands on the wheel in case the wind begins to move your vehicle, especially if you are driving a large vehicle or towing a trailer.
- 4. Give other vehicles more space.Add 1-2 extra seconds of following time in the rain, which gives you and the cars behind you more time to react to traffic.
