On rainy days, water accumulation is prone, which brings inconvenience to the driving of the owner. During the rain, drivers' observation power decreased, tire friction decreased, and it was easy to cause traffic accidents. So, how to drive safely on rainy days?
Turn slowly, don't rush to the steering wheel. Driving turns on rainy days are easy to slip on the side, so it should be slow when turning. We can return to normal speed after turning.
If you can't see the opposite corner, you need to make a horn to remind the car on the opposite side. To hit the steering wheel softly, do not turn the steering wheel very hard and step on the brakes.
Pay attention to observing pedestrians. Because pedestrians in the rain holding umbrellas, their sight, hearing, and response are restricted.
Sometimes there are pedestrians who do not pay attention to the surrounding road conditions, often they are panicked when the vehicle is approaching, making the driver caught off guard.
In this case, the driver should slow down and wait patiently. If necessary, you can choose a safe place to stop, and you must not argue with pedestrians.
Use the light correctly. On rainy days, visibility will decline. We should turn on the front lights and rear lights in time. This is not only for lighting, but also to keep other traffic participants noticing your existence.
In addition, it should be noted that when the rear vehicle driving in the same direction and the front vehicle are driving at close range, the high beam shall not be used.
Eliminate the mist on the windshield. Because the temperature difference between the inside and outside of the car is relatively large, the front windshield is easy to fogs, which will seriously affect the driver's sight.
At this time, we need to turn on the air conditioner and let the wind blow forward the windshield, so that the mist can be cleared soon.
In addition to turning on the air conditioner, we can also prepare toothpaste on the car, wipe it evenly on the front windshield or rearview mirror, and then wipe it off with a cloth. In this way, the front windshield and rearview mirror will never be fogged again, and the sight will naturally not be blocked.
Learn to observe the stagnant water on the road. If we encounter heavy rainstorms, the ground will easily accumulate water when the urban drainage system is not perfect.
At this time, we must flexibly change the speed through road area water. When passing a road with stagnant water, go to the middle lane and slow down. Because there may be much less water in the middle lane.
If the area is too much water and the car has flameout， then do not start the vehicle twice, because the engine is scrapped once the water is in.
Be sure to keep a certain driving distance when driving on rainy days. It is also critical to maintaining driving distance when it is raining. Driving the car on rainy days, judge the road conditions ahead in advance, so as to slow down in advance.
The brake distance on rainy days will also greatly increase, and it must be slow and soft when stepping on the brakes. If you need to stop, we should try to slow down about 100 meters in advance and then step on the brakes.
Do not step on the brakes suddenly, otherwise, the tires easily get out of control. In this case, the car in the back will also be limited because of the field of vision, without sufficient emergency preparation time.
If you already know the weather in advance, remember to check the wiper before driving. It is necessary to ensure that the wiper is not aging so that it can achieve the normal window rubbing function while ensuring that the waterproof tank can be drained normally.
