What do we mean by the term “TYRE BLOWOUT”?
A blow out is a rapid loss of inflation pressure of a pneumatic tire leading to an explosion.

In this article we want to tutor you guys and also professional drivers on how to perfectly control tire blowout perfectly without anyharm been done.
HERE WE GO
There are 6 simple steps to take within a maximum of 2 minutes and you will be safe, these by the grace of God I have been familiar with for decades. They are as follow:
(1) DON’T PANIC
in the event of a blowout, calm yourself down fast because your car will start misbehaving and you need to take charge.
(2) HOLD FIRMLY TO THE STEERING WHEEL
with both hand, NO VIGOROUS TURNING, as you concentrate on the road and your mirrors, in seconds study the movement pattern of the car. Your car will naturally swerve to the direction of the burst tyre.
(3) GRADUALLY TAKE OFF YOUR FOOT FROM THE ACCELERATOR,
Don’t ever attempt to press the breaks because if you do, you have 99% chance of a somersault. The car will decelerate gradually while you concentrate on the road to avoid collision with any other road user.
(4) DISENGAGE THE GEARS OF THE CAR
Do this by shifting to neutral (N) as you still maintain a firm grip on the steering wheel and put your eyes on the road.
(5) YOUR CAR SPEED GRADUALLY REDUCES
After a while depending on your initial speed, your car comes to a speed less than 60km/h when it is now safe to gradually apply the brakes and navigate to the side walk.
(6) CONGRATULATIONS YOU DID IT
Ultimately, it is now safe to put the car to a complete stop and turn off the engine. You have just saved yourself and passengers from untimely death.
Of course, everyone in the car will be in a panic mode but this is not the time to listen to them it’s time to concentrate.
