Driving Skills In Wet-sliding Road
- Aug 01, 2018 -

There should be enough tread depth between the tires and the road to drain.

If your tires are currently wearing a tip scale (2.4 mm or 3.1 mm), it should be time to consider changing the tires. Low or high tire pressure can lead to lower traction, premature wear, or tyre failure.

Check your tire pressure regularly (at least once a month) to ensure that the correct tyre pressure is used for daily driving. Visibility is a key element in ensuring safety when driving under slippery roads. You should also check the use time and wear level of the windshield wipers.

If they left stripes on your windshield when used, it's time to replace it. Of course, make sure your car can be seen by the other vehicle as it travels in a rainy road.

So please turn on your headlights and make sure it's working properly.

 

Wet Slippery road tips when driving, please keep the following tips in mind. 

1. If there is mist on your window, please turn on the air conditioner in the car to remove the moisture.

If your car does not have an air-conditioning system, please open your rear window and let the air flow. Slow driving on slippery roads is critical.

Slippery surfaces reduce the control of the wheel, increase your braking distance, and reduce your ability to bypass obstacles correctly. 

2. On the slippery road, due to the increase in braking distance, you need to pay attention to maintain a further distance from the vehicle in front.

Longer heel distances can reduce the impact of front tire sputtering on your vision.

3. A sharp or abrupt turn on a muddy road can cause the car to get out of control, so keep the steering drive steady. 

4. If it is a rainstorm, please stop now!

Heavy rains can overload your wiper, resulting in a layer of water flowing down to almost zero visibility.

The first rain always makes the road very difficult to drive, because the dry road of mud and oil spills and rainwater mix together, so that the vehicle is very easy to skid, you may feel the ability to control the vehicle is reduced, in the rain just the first half hour of driving to be extra careful. 

5. After driving through the stagnant water surface, several minor braking should be carried out so that the brake pads can dry.
