Driving In The Rain
This May Save Your Life
 

 

GOOD VISION IN A DOWNPOUR
 
How to achieve good vision while driving
during a heavy downpour.
 
We are not sure why it is so effective;
just try this method when it rains heavily.
This method was given me by a Police friend
who had experienced and confirmed it. It is
useful, even driving at night. One method
used by Canadian Military Drivers for years.
 
Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or
FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy
downpour, yet the visibility in front of
the windshield is still bad . . . . .
 
In the event you face such a situation, just
try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do),
and miracle! All of a sudden, your visibility
in front of your windshield is perfectly clear,
as if there is no rain.
 
Make sure you always have a pair of SUN
GLASSES in your car, as you are not only
helping yourself to drive safely with good
vision, but also might save your friend's
life by giving him this idea.
 
Try it yourself and share it with your friends!
It is amazing, you still see the drops on the
windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling.
 
You can see where the rain bounces off the
road. It works to eliminate the "blindness"
from passing semi's spraying you too.
 
Or the "kickup" if you are following a semi or
car in the rain. They ought to teach that little
tip in driver's training. It really does work.
 
This next warning is a another good one!
I wonder how many people know about this:

NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON

 
A 36 year old female had an accident several
weeks ago and totaled her car. A resident of
Kinburn , Ontario was traveling between Kinburn
& Ottawa. It was raining, though not excessively,
when her car suddenly began to hydro-plane and
literally flew through the air.. She was not
seriously injured but very stunned at the
sudden occurrence!
 
When she explained to the OPP Officer what
had happened he told her something that every
driver should know:

NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN
WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON.


She thought she was being cautious by setting
the cruise control and maintaining a safe
consistent speed in the rain. But the Officer
told her that if the cruise control is on when
your car begins to hydro-plane and your tires
lose contact with the pavement, your car will
accelerate to a higher rate of speed making
you take off like an airplane. She told the
OPP Officer that was exactly what had occurred.

The Officer said this warning should be listed,
on the driver's seat sun-visor along with the
airbag warning:

NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL
WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY


We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control
and drive a safe speed - but we don't tell them
to use the cruise control only when the pavement
is dry.
 
The only person the accident victim found, who
knew this (besides the officer), was a man who
had a similar accident, totaled his car and
sustained severe injuries.
 
NOTE:
Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE)
will not allow you to set the cruise control when
the windshield wipers are on. If you send this to
15 people and only one of them doesn't know about
this, then it was all worth it.


You might have saved a life.
