Tips for Driving in the Rain
Driving in rain, whether a sprinkle or a heavy downpour, can be one of the most difficult driving situations a driver encounters. If it’s been raining heavily, you need to be careful as you drive and not hit puddles at spend. Rainy day increase the risk of Aquaplaning.
Aquaplaning or hydroplaning by the tires of a road vehicle, when a layer of water builds between the wheels of the vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction that prevents the vehicle from responding to control inputs. If it occurs to all wheels simultaneously, the vehicle becomes, in effect, an uncontrolled sled or an accident.
The best strategy is to avoid contributors to aquaplaning. Proper tire pressure, narrow and unworn tires, and reduced speeds from those judged suitably moderate in the dry will mitigate the risk of aquaplaning, as will avoidance of standing water or flood.

What to do after a car accident
When you get into a car accident, there are certain steps you may want to take in order to help make sure everyone is safe, to follow the law and to get the insurance claim process started.
First, check your car and the passenger. If your car is safe to drive and is causing a hazard where it is, pull it to the side of the road. Otherwise, leave it where it is and get yourself to safety.
Second, if you're injured, call police or ambulance, secure the vehicle and ask for help. If you're seriously injured, try not to move, and wait for emergency personnel.
Third, notify your insurer and start the claims process. Call the insurance maximum 5 working days.

What is Water Hammer?
Have you heard about water hammer? Water hammer is the result of a pressure surge, or high-pressure shockwave that propagates through a piping system when a fluid in motion is forced to change direction or stop abruptly. This shockwave is also commonly referred to as a hydraulic shock or hydraulic surge, and may be characterized by a marked banging or knocking sound on the pipes immediately after shutoff.This can happen if you pass through a flood with a water level of more than 50 cm
This term is also called hydrolocking, where water enters through the air filter so that the engine stops suddenly. The second problem can also be caused by water entering the lubrication system so that it mixes with the oil.
