Driving In hail

Although occasional, hailstorms can be dangerous to drive in and can cause damage to your car. The following tips should always be followed:

  • Stay inside the vehicle. Hail falls at fast speeds, and can cause injury
  • If the hail is severe, stop driving and pull over to a safe place or hard shoulder so the hail doesn’t break the windscreen or windows. Keep your car angled so that the hail is hitting the front of your car. Windshields are reinforced to withstand forward driving and pelting objects, side windows and back glass are not and are more susceptible to breakage
