Driving in Windy Conditions

Driving in windy weather can present all kinds of hazards. It’s vital that you take precautions before getting behind the wheel on a windy day to keep you and your passengers safe.

Firstly ask yourself – is your journey really necessary? Listen to the news to keep up to date with road closures to avoid getting stuck in traffic that will cause delays to your journey. Only travel if there is no other option.

High winds can get under your car and affect your control, brought on by strong, sudden gusts that can take you by surprise. Driving slower will help you anticipate these gusts and reduce impact. Also having a firm grip on the steering wheel helps you maintain full control. If conditions become too extreme then pull over when safe and legal to do so.

Safe driving from Britannia!
