Ron Carter Chevrolet Warns Customers of Common Driving Hazards

Driving on a long trip for the holidays or even a short jaunt to Houston in your Ron Carter Chevrolet opens the door for incidents to happen on the road. There are many common issues that all vehicles will experience that can be a scary experience for drivers.

There are three in particular hazards that affect drivers each year while their vehicles are in motion. These hazards often cause driver panic and leads to driver error. Accidents result and can be a big mess for all involved. Ron Carter Chevrolet knows that remaining calm and knowing what to do can help protect you should something go wrong.

Here are some tips to keep you safe:

Emergency Stops Using ABS Brakes

If you have to suddenly stop, your ABS brakes may react and cause you to lose control of your vehicle. In order to perfect a complete stop with ABS brakes, you should practice stopping in a safe area so you’ll be ready during a real emergency. Stomp hard down onto your brake pedal and continue the pressure until you stop. It may go against your instinct to slam down on the brake pedal so hard but it is necessary. Remain focused on staying in control during the tense few moments until you stop.

Blown Tire

If you experience a tire blow out on the road, it is essential that you stay in control of the vehicle by stepping on the accelerator a little and driving straightforward. The blown tire will begin to slow your vehicle. Stay away from the brake pedal and ease your Nissan to a safe place on the side of the road.

Abrupt Vehicle Acceleration

If during your drive your Chevrolet begins to speed up without your interference, it is important to remain in control of your vehicle while you try to slow your vehicle to a stop. The first thing to try is shifting an automatic transmission into neutral or pushing in the clutch of your manual transmission. In the event this tactic does not work, you can shit off the engine completely as a last resort. Without power steering it will be more difficult to direct your vehicle but your brakes will still be of use to stop your vehicle safely.
