Driving car in rainy season…
The majority of car accidents happen during the rainy season, according to statistics. It sounds like common sense, but it needs to be said nonetheless. The reasons could be many, such as poor conditions on the road, low visibility, and traffic jams that can make driving during the monsoon really difficult.
No matter how many precautions you take it is highly possible to meet with even a minor accident or car repair during the rainy season. Here are a few tips to take into consideration when driving your car during rainy season:
1. Make sure that your car tires are in perfect condition before taking them out of your car during monsoon season. The tread of the car should be sufficient to hold the grip on the road while driving. If the tread is worn out then a layer is formed between the road and the tyre which prevents the car from having a grip on the road and leads to skidding.
2. While driving on water logged roads ensure that you are not going deep in the water. Try to estimate the level of water logged on the road before entering the area. If you drive when the water level is high, water may enter the car and cause damage to the car engine and other parts beyond repair.
3. While driving on the wet road it is important to remember that driving slowly can prevent accidents. Due to rainwater on the road, the traction between the road and the tyre will be less and may result in skidding while trying to bring the vehicle to halt suddenly.
4. Some people neglect to maintain their windshield wipers in working condition which will affect them seriously while driving during rainy season. Windshield wipers help to wipe the water droplets from the windshield mirror thereby providing clear vision to the driver. The windshield wiper also helps to clear the moisture from the glass in a mist or during a heavy downpour.
5. Manholes are very common on the road and are enabled to carry the rainwater into the drainages. But these holes can be life takers in the rainy season if attention is not paid. During the rainy season, it is difficult to identify on which side of the road pothole is, and hitting the pothole can damage the tires and engine.
6. It is very important to maintain distance between cars and other vehicles while driving. In the rainy season when driving on wet roads if breaks are applied suddenly the car might take some time to come to halt. If enough distance is not maintained it may lead to bumping into the car in front of you. Also, it is to be kept in mind that sudden breaking can skid the car or even overturn the car.
7. The battery of the car plays a very important role when it comes to starting the car while using AC, wipers, lights, etc. When driving through areas with deep waters, the electric components can experience shorting and may be permanently damaged.
8. Rain doesn't do your vehicle any favors. It leaves behind acidic deposits that eat away at the exposed parts of your car, especially the paint job and any metallic finishes. The best thing you can do for the exterior of your vehicle is to wipe it off right away with a dry cloth before it dries up or brush off grime using a microfiber towel. Before washing, rinse off any tough stains such as bird droppings with plenty of water. Clean the vehicle starting from the top and working down using a soft sponge.
9. Your headlights and taillights are more important than ever during the rainy season not just for illuminating the environment when it's dark and stormy but also to indicate your position clearly to other road users. For your driving safety, check that your headlights and taillights are turned on. In damp or humid weather, you may find your light lenses fog over due to the temperature difference between the inside and outside of your vehicle. A simple fix is to switch the lights on, and the fog will clear shortly.
10. Investing in accessories to protect your vehicle’s interior from water, mud, and dirt is also key to enjoying a more comfortable ride. Protective gear such as rubber floor mats, boot trays, and pedal caps are especially useful during the rainy season.
