New week, we are with you with a new blog post. First of all, as Hi-Tech Driver Education, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving. If you hadn’t read our blog post last week, you can read it by clicking here. This week we have prepared a blog post for you on Tips For Driving In Unfavourable Weather Conditions.
Canada is one of the countries where you will drive in unfavourable weather conditions. When we say unfavourable weather conditions, we will talk about snowstorms and heavy rain rather than weather conditions such as rain and snow. You can click here to read the article about driving in unfavourable weather conditions on the Ontario province page.
Let’s move on to Tips For Driving In Unfavourable Weather Conditions;
The issue of resentment, which we try to underline as much as possible in each of our articles, is valid for driving in unfavourable weather conditions. To avoid compromising your safety, make sure your equipment is in working order before you set off. Maintaining your car more frequently during the winter months and having your brakes and tires checked more often helps you not be caught off guard while driving in unfavourable weather conditions. In winter, people do not clean their cars very much. But having your headlights dirty is dangerous. Dirty headlights will neither provide the light you need to see nor will they provide the light that will help you be noticed. Before you set off, make sure that your car is clean so that it does not block your view. Also, make sure that your windshield wiper water is of the anti-freeze.
Don’t forget to turn on your fog lights. You should use low beams instead of high beams. Your dipped beams not only help you see, but they also help you to drive in unfavourable weather conditions so that other cars can see you.
I don’t think we should say that you are wearing your seat belt before we set off, but we still hear and read about people driving without wearing their belts on the news on the last day of traffic accidents. It is essential to use a seat belt while driving in unfavourable weather conditions. That’s why we would like to remind you again that you fasten your seat belt before you set off.
Be sure to plan your ride before you set off. Since driving in unfavourable weather conditions is different from standard times, it causes you to reach your destination later. Make your plan with this delay in mind. Almost all of us have smartphones these days, so be sure to check the weather forecast before you set off. In addition, thanks to artificial intelligence, today, thanks to map applications, it can show the traffic-based process and time of your destination. If you do not feel safe due to weather conditions, we recommend that you postpone it or go by public transport if you can postpone your trip.
If you are driving in unfavourable weather conditions, you should go slower than expected, not speed or make sudden movements. Driving in unfavourable weather conditions is difficult because your handling becomes difficult, the road slips, and the ground becomes accident-prone. Therefore, always keep the distance between you and the car in front of you long enough to give you the braking distance you need. Please note that this time the room you need is a little bigger than usual because you are driving in unfavourable weather conditions. Give room for sudden stops that might happen.
Have you noticed that you get distracted when you focus too much on one thing? Focusing too much on the road while driving in unfavourable weather conditions can cause an accident. Therefore, turning on the radio can help you keep you more vigorous and have the necessary road command. Especially by listening to a station about the road on the radio, you can get information about the current road situation and get information about smoother road routes. But please make sure that you do not turn up the radio’s volume too much so that you are not distracted when driving in unfavourable weather conditions.
If you are tired, restless or have trouble paying attention while driving, pull over and relax. There’s nothing wrong with resting your eyes after the seeker isn’t in a dangerous situation. Think of the life you might have regained instead of the time you lost. The challenge of driving in bad weather is physical and mental. So if you need to pull over, pull over and rest.
In the basic principle, we need to pay attention to the things we need to pay attention to, only to the things that we need to pay more attention to while driving in unfavourable weather conditions.
