Repair Work by the Roadside
You must refrain from carrying out work on the offside of your vehicle unless you are protected by a recovery vehicle with flashing lights. Even with this protection you must take extra care on roads with heavy traffic.
You will feel a loss of steering control if you suffer a wheel blow out. This is particularly prevalent if it a front wheel. In order to keep control of the vehicle you should:
Keep a firm grasp of the steering wheel
Reduce your speed gradually and avoid braking harshly
Signal your intention to move to the left
Keep an eye out for vehicles or debris on your nearside when pulling over.
On larger vehicles a rear wheel blow out may not be as easy to notice. This is why it is important to continually check that wheels are in good condition. it is advisable to do this every time you stop and exit the vehicle.
