High speed tire burst has become the "number one killer" of highway traffic accidents. The fundamental reason for the tragedy of traffic accident is that we can't make correct response in time after the tire burst.
Now let's get to know about a flat tire and what we should do after it.
So, is there any sign of a flat tire when the car is in motion? Because the tire burst usually happens suddenly, there is no sign.
The specific performance of the car at the moment of tire burst is as follows: when the vehicle is running normally, the steering wheel suddenly shakes, followed by a "bang" sound, and then the front of the car deviates to a certain direction and loses control. At this point, we should pay high attention to it.
The first and most important thing to do is not be nervous or flustered, and hold the steering wheel tightly with both hands. Never step on the emergency brake.
Secondly, keep calm and distinguish whether it is a front wheel or a rear wheel tire burst. There are great differences between the two situations, and the risk factor and operation method are also different.
Rear tire burst: the symptoms are that the tail of the car is wobbly and bumpy, but the direction is still controlled. What we need to do at this time is: hold the steering wheel with both hands, which can usually keep the car running in a straight line. In addition, it is better to step on the brake pedal repeatedly, so that the center of gravity of the car can be moved forward, so that the intact front tire is stressed, and the pressure on the burst tire can be reduced. And pay attention to the vehicles passing behind, drive out of the lane safely and pull over.
Front tire burst: the symptoms are that the steering wheel suddenly loses control and the front wheel deviates seriously. The front tire burst will affect the driver's control of the steering wheel, so it is quite dangerous. What we need to do at this time is: hold the steering wheel tightly with both hands, and do not turn the direction violently (be sure to be gentle), use light braking or inertia to slow down the vehicle, avoid the separation of tire and rim, and finally drive slowly out of the lane and pull over.
If you feel a little nervous when you look at the description, you must remember two points and remind yourself of the incident.
1. Don't hit the direction. 2. Don't step on the brake
Any minor error in the process of handling a tire burst may lead to serious consequences. In order to prevent tire burst, we must do a good job in front of the car inspection.
