You're driving along to the Baby Cakes game when, suddenly, you hear a pop and one side of your car seems to collapse. Then, you lose control of your car. One of your tires has suffered a blow out.
Geico insurance says a blow out is "one of the most unexpected—and unnerving—driving experiences." You never want it to happen. You don't expect it to happen. But it does happen and, as Geico says, "something as small as a nail in the road can be the cause."
Although the number of blow outs has declined since tire pressure monitoring systems have come into play, they still happen and it's good for a driver to know how to handle one and how to help prevent one.
If it happens, don't jam on the brakes. Geico says, "The goal is to gain control of the vehicle as it continues to move and to get it away from traffic."
Signal for a lane change, ease your foot off the gas pedal while steering to the side of the road as quickly and as smoothly as you can. Turn on your hazards, and once the car is safely off the road, call for assistance.
As for prevention, think tire care, especially when it comes to tire inflation, Geico says.
And, of course, replace your tires when necessary.
