Poor Weather

We need different weather conditions to assist the planet’s eco system. We also sometimes enjoy the various weather conditions because of the variations of heat or coolness we receive. However, like most things, there’s always a security precaution to take when driving a car in these different weather conditions.

Wind is not the worst weather condition to experience. It frees us down a bit once the sun is burning our skin and it also dusts sand from our patios and verandas. Strong winds, though, can knock off the cars course. Sometimes the end makes us swerve across the road because of how strong the force is that’s pushing our cars.

Snow can be damaging in many ways. Does the freezing cold bring pain to our finger tips but it also makes a sheet of frost on the streets which make slippage very easy. Snow can also influence the car’s ability to start because of the lack of heat within the engine.

Extreme heats will not affect the car too radically but it can affect overheating whilst driving.

Fog is comparable to heavy rains except you can’t see a meter before you because of the depth of the cloud. Fog usually happens when the clouds drop very low to the ground. You will often notice fog in the mountain areas where snow and rain is common. It’s important to always have your bright lights or fog lights when in these conditions to make sure that you’re visible to other drivers.

Rain can influence how well we see when we are driving. This will usually occur when there are heavy rains that make the roads look like they have a white sheet covering them. Sometimes the cool rain fogs up the windscreen making it nearly impossible to see where the lines on the road are.

Rain could also influence how quickly we’re able to brake. The brake discs might cause a stopping motion to take effect but if the streets are lubricated with water, the tyres will not grip into the usually rough tar.

Various kinds of conditions can affect your car’s driving performance and impair your vision whilst driving. It is important to drive only once you know that it’s safe or if you know how to drive in such different weather events.
