Recommendations about car driving in adverse weather conditions

Features of driving in adverse road conditions

Driving during a rain, in a strong fog or snowfall demands from the driver of special skills, in view of decrease in coupling of wheels with a paving and visibility deteriorations. Constantly support the car in technically working order. At commission of trips to bad weather observe extra care. Avoid use темпостата in adverse weather conditions.

Lower speed and move more slowly, than usually in normal weather conditions on a dry paving. Remember that reactions of the car to management will be more languid and slowed down even if the paving looks only slightly damp. Try to influence all controls of the car smoothly. On a wet and slippery paving sharp breakthrough of a steering wheel or careless squeezing of a brake pedal can lead to control loss over management. At the beginning of a trip, still completely without having adapted for adverse weather conditions, show the increased care. This rule is especially useful for observing at movement during snowfall.

It is necessary to remember that at car operation in a warm season many useful skills of driving of the car on a slippery paving are forgotten that demands some time for their restoration.

Extra care show, operating the car during a rain as absence of practice during the dry period does not allow to be reconstructed and adapt a bridle manner for new conditions quickly.

After the long dry period the first rains do a paving especially slippery.


For safety of traffic in any weather conditions it is very important to have the good review in all directions. Take care also of that your car remained to well appreciable drivers of other vehicles, - remember that at movement on the route inclusion of a passing beam never will prevent even during daylight hours. These requirements are more difficult for executing in adverse weather conditions.

Regularly check a condition of a brush of a screen wiper and a nozzle of a washer of a windscreen. Constantly support demanded level of liquid in the tank of washing liquid. Add in the tank only the liquids, recommended brands. Watch a condition of working elements of screen wipers, make their replacement as soon as brushes cease to clear glass properly. For prevention of condensation of moisture on an internal surface of glasses use having blown in glasses air, in case of need turn on the air conditioner.

Coupling of tires with a paving

Regularly supervise pressure of a rating of tires and deterioration degree (depth of a pattern) their protectors. Both these a factor are extremely important from the point of view of good coupling of tires with a paving and prevention of the phenomenon of hydroplaning, that is sharp reduction of coupling with the road at entrance to pools. For ensuring the best controllability with the car and traffic safety at approach of a winter season use шипованную / special winter rubber.

During movement constantly watch changes of road conditions which often appear very unstable. Presence on the road of wet foliage can be not dangerous, than ice. Often in appearance the pure and dry paving can обледеневать separate sites. Especially dangerous conditions develop at air temperatures near 0°С when pools can alternate with наледью that does behavior of the car especially unpredictable.

Be careful when switching an automatic transmission in the lowered range. On a slippery covering sharp inclusion of a low gear can lead to short-term pro-slipping of driving wheels and car drift

Extra care and attention are required from the driver at commission of overtakings. Equally it is necessary to observe attentiveness, when overtaking your car by other vehicles. Water and dirt splashes from under wheels of the overtaken lorry can sharply worsen visibility through a windscreen. The rush of a lateral wind during commission of overtaking of the truck or the bus is dangerous control loss over management.
