Recommendations about car driving in adverse weather conditions

Features of driving in adverse road conditions

Driving during a rain, in a strong fog or a snowfall demands from the driver of special skills, in view of decrease in coupling of wheels with a road covering and visibility deterioration. Constantly support the car in technically working order. At fulfilment of trips to bad weather observe extra care. Avoid use темпостата (at a corresponding complete set of the car) in adverse weather conditions.

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

The review

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 a line passing light inclusion never will prevent even in the daytime. These requirements are more difficult for executing in adverse weather conditions.

Regularly check a condition of brushes of screen wipers and snuffled windscreen washers. Constantly support demanded level of a liquid in the tank of a washing liquid. Add in the tank only the liquids, recommended marks. 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 a moisture on an internal surface of glasses use having blown in glasses air, in case of need include air conditioner.

Coupling of tyres with a road covering

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

During movement constantly observe of changes of road conditions which frequently appear very astable. Presence on road of wet foliage can be not dangerous, than a glaze ice. Often in appearance the pure and dry road covering can обледеневать separate sites. Especially dangerous conditions develop at air temperatures nearby 0°С when pools can alternate with наледью that does behaviour of the car especially unpredictable.

Be cautious at switching of an automatic transmission in the lowered range. On a slippery covering sharp inclusion of a hill-climbing gear can lead to short-term proslipping of driving wheels and car drift

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

Councils about driving in cross-country conditions (only models Outback)

Always aspire to observe recommended safety measures for the purpose of minimisation of risk of hit in an emergency.

In cross-country conditions always drive the car with limiting care. Avoid unjustified risk.

At movement in cross-country conditions strongly keeping a steering wheel, both hands covering it for a rim (not for spokes), thumbs of hands should be held from lateral aspect of a rim in order to avoid their reversing at jerks.

Having finished movement on water, sand or to a dirt, necessarily check up efficiency of functioning of brakes, examine the car bottom on presence of the stuck strangers of subjects.

Always during movement of the car seat belts of the driver and all passengers should be fastened.

Before to start overcoming of a water barrier necessarily measure depth of water and bottom density on a site of a prospective crossing. Move slowly, avoiding hit in deep holes. Watch, that water did not get to the engine and other units of the car. Water hit in an air inlet is fraught with serious internal damages of the engine as a result of hydroblow. Remember that washing away консистентной greasings from wheel bearings, is fraught with their premature exit out of operation as a result of corrosion. Water hit in differentials, a transmission and a distributing box is inadmissible also.

Sand and the dirt accumulating on brake mechanisms, can be at the bottom of decrease in efficiency of braking and damage of components of brake system.

After each day of driving on impassability, make careful survey of the basic components of the car.
