When most drivers think of treacherous conditions, they immediately think of driving in the rain. However, driving in windy conditions can also be dangerous.
In this video, you will learn some tips to help you stay safe when driving in windy weather. The first tip is to stay alert for debris on the road. High winds can move objects like tree branches and trash cans onto the road. In addition, make sure that you don’t touch or move power lines that have fallen. Furthermore, if a signal is out, treat the intersection as a four-way stop. Of course, when driving in windy conditions, you should maintain good habits like keeping both hands on the wheel. Finally, keep an eye out for standing water.
