How to drive in a downpour
- Slow down! A brand-new tyre can only displace a maximum of 10mm of water at a maximum speed of 80km/h. Any faster speed or deeper water will result in aquaplaning.
- Increase your following distance. Even with ABS or dynamic stability control brakes, extreme weather can double the distance required to stop your vehicle.
- Keep both hands on the wheel at all times. Deep puddles could pull your vehicle in an unintended direction.
- Increase visibility by using headlights, and both front and rear high-intensity fog lights.
- Avoid crossing rivers. Fast-flowing water just 30cm deep can push a vehicle off the road and down the river. If this happens, a headrest can be pulled out and used to break a window.
