How to drive in emergency situation?

How to drive in emergency situation?

In any emergency driving situation, it is very important that drivers think clearly and don’t panic. In most emergency situations, drivers have only a short time to react. This section will include what to do when an emergency occurs.

Skidding
The technique for handling a skid is the same for front-and rear-wheel drive vehicles:
Ease of the gas, and shift into neutral.
Do not hit the brakes. The skid will be worse.
Turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. If the rear tires are skidding to the left, the steering wheel should be turned left. If they are sliding right, the steer should be turned right.
The driver must be prepared to steer left and right a few times until his car will be completely under control.

Running off the Pavement
In case of driving off the pavement edge and to the shoulder of the road, the driver must pay attention to the following remarks:

  •  Grip the steering wheel tightly.
  •  Gently apply the brake to reduce the speed of the vehicle.
  •  Check for traffic behind, and then steer gently backs onto the road.


Flat Tire, Blowout, or Wheel Loss
If a flat tire surprises the driver, he should grip the steering wheel tightly and ease his foot off the gas pedal and gently apply the brakes. In case he begins to skid, the driver should turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. As he recovers gently, he should straighten the car and do not use the brake until the vehicle is under control. Finally, the driver should pull the vehicle well off the road as soon as possible.

Brake Failure
If the brake pedal is fully depressed but the brakes fail to respond, the driver should pump the brake pedal several times rapidly to build up brake fluid pressure, but he should do not pump antilock brakes.
Moreover, the driver should shift down to a lower gear, and work his way down to the lowest gear, if necessary. The driver should apply the parking brake gently, but hold the brake release in case the vehicle starts to skid. In case the driver cannot slow the vehicle, he should sound his horn and flash lights to warn drivers or pedestrians.

Stuck Gas Pedal
If the gas pedal (accelerator) sticks, the driver should put the car in neutral and apply the brakes to slow down. He should use his feet to try to free the gas pedal.        If the gas pedal do not release, he should reapply the brakes and he must always keep his eyes on the road.

Vehicle Approaching Head On
If a vehicle approaches head on in the same lane, the driver should slow down and pull to the right. He should sound horns to alert the other drivers.

Headlight Failure 
If a headlight suddenly goes out, the driver should turn on the parking lights, emergency flashers, or turn signal. First, drivers should try the headlight switch a few times, then pull off the road as quickly as possible and leave the emergency flashers on.

Breakdowns 
The driver should move the vehicle off the pavement to the side of the road and he should never park on a hill or on a curve where others cannot see. If he cannot get his vehicle off the pavement safely, he should get all passengers out of the vehicle and off the road. On a highway with a breakdown lane or shoulder, it is recommended to move the vehicle as far from the travel lane as possible. He should not stand anywhere near the travel lane or in the breakdown lane, if he can avoid doing so.
Turn on the emergency warning lights (flashers). At night, the driver should also turn on the vehicle’s interior lights. It is recommended to tie a white cloth to the antenna or door handle (use a red cloth when it’s snowing).   If he has flares or reflective signs, he should place them 200 feet in front of and behind the vehicle to warn other drivers.
