How to Keep a Car Under Control After a Blow Out

Posted - 11/05/2012

A blowout can be a very scary event for even the most experienced driver. Fortunately, there are several things that can be done to avoid having a flat tire occur while driving. First, a person should be sure to check their tires regularly for signs of wear that could contribute to a flat. These signs can include a loss of tread, an inability to hold air and chunks of missing rubber. When these signs occur, it is important to change the tires promptly in order to avoid a roadside emergency.

In some cases, a blowout is not preventable as it is possible to run over debris while driving. If you experience a blowout, it is important to slowly take your foot off of the accelerator while keeping your hands firmly on the steering wheel. Then, you will want to slowly steer in the direction that you want to go. Be sure to turn on your blinker and emergency flasher lights so that others will know that your car is experiencing problems. Once you have moved your vehicle to a safe location, you can begin to change your tire.
