Driving in Inclement Weather

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Driver Safety For You & Your Family

Inclement weather is covering several states in the US. There are tornadoes, severe thunderstorms, and hail storms. Heavy rains complicate the driving situation alone. So how should one drive in inclement weather?

DefensiveDriving.com has an answer for you. The WheelsinMotion.com online driver safety video gives detail of what happens to road conditions during light rains, ice storms, and flooding. For instance, did you know that you could hydroplane on a thin layer of water? This can be even more dangerous for states with rare incliment weather like California. How should you react as a driver if your vehicle hydroplanes? Let’s take a brief look.

There are three main factors that cause a car or truck to hydroplane. Speed, tread depth, and water depth.  The faster you travel, the more traction is lost on a wet surface.  The more worn your tires are, the more likely your car is to hydroplane.  As the water in your path of travel gets deeper, more traction is lost.  This combination can occur rapidly. Before you even know it, you lose control of your vehicle.

The DefensiveDriving.com online driver safety courses are great for addressing these scenarios. It’s courses are great for teens and mature drivers alike. The WheelsinMotion.com video is not your hum-drum  video. The training provided is visual, interactive, and educational.
