How to drive in monsoons

SAFE - DRIVING TIPS ............

WHEN IT IS RAINING !!!

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 told by a Police friend who had experienced and confirmed it.

It is useful...even driving at night.

Most of the motorists would turn wind sheild wipers on 'HIGH' or on the 'FASTEST SPEED' during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is still bad..
In the event you face such a situation, just put on your 'SUNGLASSES' and miracles!

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 SUNGLASSES in your car. 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...!!!Amazingly, you'll still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling.You'll also see where the rain bounces off the road. Wearing sunglasses works to eliminate the "blindness" from passing cars. Or the "kickup" if you are following a car in the rain. They ought to teach this little tip in driver's training. It really does work. This is a good warning.

I wonder how many people knew about this???

Another good tip:
A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago. 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 PoliceOfficer what had happened, he told her something that every driver should know -
NEVER - EVER 'DRIVE' IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON.'
She however, thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain. But the Police Officer told her that if the cruise control is on, your car will in fact begin to hydro-plane. When the tires lose contact with the road,your car will automatically accelerate to a higher rate of speed, making you take off like an aeroplane.

She told the Officer that was exactly what had occurred.

The Officer said; 'This warning should be listed, on the driver's seat sun-visor -

'NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE ROAD IS WET OR ICY'

Along with the airbag warning. '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 road is dry.

The only person the accident victim found who knew this, (besides the Officer), was a man who'd had a similar accident, totalled 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 your windshield wipers are on.

Even if you send this to 15 people and only one of them doesn't know about it, it's still worth it.'You may have saved a life.'

Well, I have used the "trick" in excessive fog and it had worked like a charm. Didn't ever deliberately done in rains (although I always drive with my shades on during the daytime).

Another small helpful tip is to apply a coat of wax (shave off a candle) and white vinegar on the windshields and the raindrops won't stop altogether! :drive:

Another tip is a tube of Colgate white toothpaste application on windscreen will make water pass and making visibility clear during rains
