SAFE-DRIVING TIPS WHEN IT IS RAINING !!!

Most of us depend on our own personal vehicles for commuting these days rather than relying on public transport. We may have become quite adept at driving through all kinds of weather and traffic situations. However, lots of expert drivers may also end up having unfortunate accidents in the event of a rain or thunderstorm. This is because rain can significantly reduce visibility while also making the road slippery. This can considerably increase the number of accidents that take place.


1)     You should check the working of your wipers before you leave your house. Sometimes, drivers may discover to their utter horror that their wipers just refuse to work when it starts to pour.
2)     You must install defoggers in your car so that the window panes don’t start building up with fog once you roll them up and switch on an air conditioner.
3)     You must get a thorough check done on the brakes and tires of your car before proceeding to make a long journey in rainy weather. This is because a break failure is more likely to happen when the roads are slippery and wet. The tires of your car must be such so that they are able to maintain a tight grip on the surface of the water laden road.
4)     If you feel that the rain is just too much and is completely hampering your driving, you should find a place on the side of the road to park your vehicle for sometime before the rain subsides to a certain extent. It is better to be safe than sorry in this case as nothing can be more important than your life.
5)     You should refrain from driving at fast speeds when it is raining as driving in the rain can be quite unpredictable with your car performing differently than normal.
Although most people do not take rainy weather seriously, the statistics show that accidents are twice as likely to occur in such weather. One must exercise extreme caution and follow the above mentioned tips when driving in such weather to remain safe and secure.
AND IN THE LAST A NICE TIP TO ALL
GOOD VISION IN A DOWNPOUR

How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour. We
are not sure why it is so effective; just try this method when it rains
heavily. This method was told by a Police friend who had experienced
and confirmed it. It is useful…even driving at night.
Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers
during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is
still bad……..
In the event you face such a situation, just put on your SUNGLASSES
and miracles! All of a sudden, your visibility in
front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.
Make sure you always have a pair of SUNGLASSES in your car.
You are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might save your friend’s life by giving him this idea.. Try it yourself and
share it with your friends!!!!
Amazingly, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet
of rain falling. You can see where the rain bounces off the road. It
works to eliminate the “blindness” from passing cars. Or the “kickup”
if you are following a car in the rain.

They ought to teach this little tip in driver’s training.. It really

does work.
This is a good warning. I wonder how many people knew about this???
