Drive safely in mud – injury solicitors in Dunning
Adverse weather conditions are the most likely to lead to car accidents, as they increase the chances of you slipping or getting stuck. Your driving time is increased when you drive in the rain in particular, as visibility is reduced and the ground becomes slippery and difficult to move across easily. When you need to drive across a muddy terrain, you need to be careful not to skid or get stuck, and here are a few tips for ensuring that this does not happen.
- Drive slowly. Although it may seem more likely that you will get stuck if you drive slowly, it is the safest way to drive across a very muddy terrain. Driving slowly means that the wheels have a chance to get purchase on the ground, and keep you more secure.
- Avoid the accelerator if you feel your wheels sticking. Most people’s initial reaction is to press down hard on the accelerator to try to get out of the rut, but this only makes the wheels spin harder and the ruts get deeper. Keep your foot off of the pedal until the car settles, and then press down slowly to try to move yourself.
- Drive around the ruts. Ruts in the road may be where other drivers are driving, but you should avoid this and stick to the higher areas around them. This will prevent you from getting too deeply into a rut that is already present.
- Turn into a skid. If you start to slide on mud then turn your steering wheel into the direction of the slide and hit the brake pedal. If you try to trun away from the slide you could actually tip your car over.
