How to Drive in Windy Conditions | Harlingen, TX
Safety on the road should be your top priority behind the wheel. Stay safe when driving in windy conditions in Harlingen, Texas, by following these tips:
- Take it slow. Reduce your speed to help make you less vulnerable to high winds, especially on highways cutting across big open fields.
- Avoid high-risk vehicles. In general, increase your distance from other vehicles in case you lose control of your vehicle momentarily. Specifically, stay far away from vulnerable vehicles, including semi-trucks, trucks or SUVs with a trailer in tow, and vans.
- Stay home. If you don’t absolutely need to be somewhere (like a trip to the hospital or picking up a child from daycare or school), we recommend staying home until the weather has neutralized.
- Turn on your headlights. If the wind is kicking up dust, dirt, sand, or snow, increase visibility — and make it easier for drivers to see you — by turning on your headlights.
