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 on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED. Of the wipers 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 SUN GLASSES  (any model  will do), and miracle! 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 SUN  GLASSES 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!???
Amazing, you  still see the drops on the windshield, but not the  sheet of rain falling.? You can see where the  rain bounces off the road. It 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. She was  traveling between Gladewater & Kilgore. It was  raining, though not excessively and 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 highway patrolman what had  happened.
He told her something that every  driver should know – NEVER DRIVE IN  THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON  . She thought  she was being cautious by setting the cruise  control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in  the rain..
But the highway patrolman told her  that if the cruise control is on, your car will  begin to hydro-plane when the tires lose contact  with the pavement, and your car will accelerate to  a higher rate of speed making you take off like an  airplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly  what had occurred. The patrolman said this  warning should be listed, on the driver’s’  seat sun-visor – NEVER USETHE  CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT 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 pavement is dry.

The only person  the accident victim found, who knew this (besides  the patrolman), was a man who had a similar  accident, totaled 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 the windshield wipers  are on.
