DRIVING IN WINDY WEATHER Be alert and ready to slow down Hold the wheel firmly Steer carefully to maintain control If you have a head wind: accelerate a little more If you have a tail wind: slow ahead of time If a car passes you and a strong blast hits: slow and steer slightly into the wind to the opposite side of the passing car and

maintain a straight path of travel. SKIDS

Avoid sudden braking and accelerating. Power Skid: Ease off accelerator. Slow to a gentle stop by shifting to neutral and gently pushing your brake pedal. Braking Skid: Let up on brake to unlock wheels. Sideways Skid: Ease off accelerator or brake and steer in the direction that the

rear of your car is skidding. Skidding into a Curve: Ease off your accelerator or brake. Keep tires rolling to maintain steering control. Steer into the direction your cars rear is going. Once corrected then reduce speed and stay into the middle of your lane. DRIVING IN RAIN Reduce speed Use windshield wipers Put headlights on

Keep following distance longer Brake sooner then normal HYDROPLANING Hydroplaning: is when tires ride the surface of water rather than gripping the road. Reduce speed to keep control Use properly inflated tires with good tread

Worn, bald,under inflated cars and slushy snow in standing water increase the chances.
