Vehicle emergencies happen seem to occur in the least desirable circumstance, when you least expect it. During these times some individuals panic, especially those who don’t know what to do with the situation, especially when they get stranded in a remote area. When you encounter vehicle emergencies, it’s imperative that you understand the measures and options needed to address the problem instead of getting angry. Here are ways on how to handle these kinds of emergencies effectively.

What to do if the car breaks down

If possible, park your disabled vehicle in an area where it can be seen 200 feet in each direction and make sure that all the four wheels are off the paved area. Get the passengers (if any) safely away from the car and traffic and turn on the emergency flashers. You can also tie a white cloth on the antenna or on the left door handle and raise the hood for total visibility.

What to do if breaks are wet

As much as you try to avoid getting brakes wet during flood or massive downpours, you can’t control things like that from happening. The only thing to do is to maneuver the brakes and keep the car away from the flooded area. You can tap or press the brakes lightly until you’ve gained full control over them; dry the brakes by slowly driving and applying pressure to them.

Tire blowout

Tire blowouts may be due to faulty installation, tread defects, or puncture. Whatever the reason, don’t panic. Whether you’re driving a BMW Calgary has to offer or a Chevy, stay calm and just concentrate on steering as the car will pull straight ahead in the direction of the flat – then apply the brakes softly once you’ve gained full control of the vehicle. Pull off safely in the pavement and start changing the tires.

In an event of brake failure

Even Cadillac Calgary has to offer and other luxury cars are susceptible to brake failures and yours is no exception. In the event of brake failure, keep calm and quickly pump the brakes and shift them to lower gears. Let wind resistance create friction to slow your vehicle down. If you have an emergency brake installed in your car, the better you’ll be in handling your car.

Power steering failure

In case of a power steering failure, you can still have full control of the Calgary BMW or Chevy vehicle, but it’ll be hard for you to turn the steering wheel. It’s advisable to slow down and avoid making sharp turns to prevent from crashing. Have the car checked and repaired immediately.
