What tips do you have for driving in high winds?
Last night’s rain in Central Pennsylvania is being followed by extremely high winds. It is important to remember some driving tips for operating a vehicle in high winds. This will help to avoid the possibility of causing a serious accident which could involve injuries.
1. Reduce your speed
2. Correct your steering, especially when moving from a protected area to an unprotected area.
3. Be aware of vehicles around you because winds usually are more of a problem for drivers of trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, campers, and drivers who are towing trailers.
4. Stay alert for slippery areas because wind is often accompanied by heavy rain or winter precipitation.
