What To Do When Your Car Have a Tyre Blowout While Still On Speed

There has been many report of  unfortunate death of many people due to an accident occasioned by a tyre blowout and sometime ago and the fact that we have many untrained drivers, it has become pertinent for me to write this.

There are 6 simple steps to take within a maximum of 2 minutes and you will be safe. They are as follow:

 

[1] DON’T PANIC

In the event of a blowout, calm yourself down fast because your car will start misbehaving and you need to take charge.

 

[2] NO VIGOROUS TURNING

Hold firmly to your steering wheel with both hand, as you concentrate on the road and your mirrors, in seconds study the movement pattern of the car. Your car will naturally swerve to the direction of the burst tyre.

 

[3] NEVER MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO PRESS THE BRAKES

Gradually take off your foot from the accelerator, DON’T EVER ATTEMPT TO PRESS THE BRAKES, if you do, you have a 95% chance of a somersaults. The car will decelerate gradually while you concentrate on the road to avoid collision with any other road user.

[4] DISENGAGE THE GEARS

Disengage the gears of the car by shifting to neutral (N) as you still maintain a firm grip on the steering wheel and put your eyes on the road.

 

[5] APPLY BRAKE GRADUALLY AT SPEED LESS THAN 60km/h

After a while depending on your initial speed, your car comes to a speed less than 60km/h when it is now safe to GRADUALLY apply the brakes and navigate to the side walk.

 

[6] STOP THE CAR

Ultimately, it is now safe to put the car to a complete stop and turn off the engine. You have just saved yourself and passengers from untimely death.

NOTE:

Of course, everyone in the car will be in a panic mode BUT this is NOT THE TIME TO LISTEN TO THEM, it is TIME TO CONCENTRATE.

Please, don’t just read, share to save a life.
