How to drive your Japanese used car in Rain?
If you love the natural beauty, you will definitely enjoy the driving in rain, although the best way to enjoy it is to stay at home. But if it is an emergency or you really want to drive in a rain, you will have to be very careful and follow the rules which have been defined for driving in such situation.
The reality is that driving in the rain can be very dangerous so you should follow all the safety tips which have been defined by the driving experts in the whole world. It is also very important to mention that most of the Japanese cars used in the United Kingdom, Pakistan, Jamaica, Kenya and other major countries are fully loaded, so you must understand which features should be used while driving and which should be turned off to avoid any dangerous situation due to rain.
Slow Down your Vehicle
The best tip, which can be given while you are driving in the rain is to slow down your vehicle and take some time for taking any decision regarding overtake, speed and brake implementation. This idea works in those situations where the rain is slow and there is a slippery situation outside. The slow driving also helps you to keep your Japanese used car from hydroplaning as in the rain, there can be the layer in between the road and your tires so in that particular situation, and braking system works slowly which can be dangerous if you are driving fast.
Make sure that your vision is clear
It is very important for you to have a clear vision while you are driving in a heavy rain. The best option can be to use headlights for getting proper vision. Police do not allow you normally to turn on lights in the daylight but in this particular situation, it is the perfect option for getting clear vision.
Keep yourself in your lane and at a distance
Some people try to follow the front car’s tail, but it can be horrible for you. The best way is to keep more distance from the front vehicle so you will have the opportunity to control your car as well. It is also the best practice to keep your vehicle in your lane and give the space to other vehicles so they can pass you easily.
Observe and Analyze
As all we know that we drive normally by instincts and rely on our sixth sense. This is not a good way of driving, especially when you are facing heavy rain. You must analyze the situation with a clear mind and observe what is going on around you.
Cruise Control can be dangerous
Most of the Japanese cars in the United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Kenya, Bangladesh, Jamaica, Trinidad and other countries are fully loaded and cruise control is the option which most of us love and enjoy. But if you are driving in a rain, you must turn off the cruise control as you need to be slow in this situation, but if you are using cruise control, the speed will definitely be high which can be dangerous.
The Flow should be in your mind
In the heavy rain, there will be water on the road so you must be aware of two things. Firstly, you know the depth of the water as if you will not bother it, you can have to face major issues and the second thing is the power of the water flow. If water flow is faster, your vehicle can be the victim of this water so change your route if you feel both or one of the above described issues.
The last but not the least thing which should be followed before driving in heavy rain is the proper car examination. This issue may not be very serious if you are moving within the city, but if you are going to drive on a long route, whether there is a rain or not, you must visit your car doctor for proper examination. This is the only way through which you can think that there will be no major issues on the road.
