Accidents can happen at any time in any place and that is why we are always advised to be cautious of all our moves. In a blink of an eye, our life can change into a different direction and when you are seated in the driving seat, you have to think more than twice about all the decisions that you make because all the decisions that you make can change your life forever.
However, being prepared for all the things that come on your way whether it’s good or bad is one of the best ways to face challenges. You should be courageous and knowledgeable enough to face all the obstacles and then you don’t want to be afraid to all the unknown disasters that come on your way.
So, here we are going to enlighten you about what you should do in a case where your car sinks.
Knowing certain pressure points on windows and the difference between tempered and untemper glasses can save your life and that is why it is important to be knowledgeable about all the things that come on your way.
Something that you should keep in your mind is that, if you find yourself trapped in a car, focusing on the edges of the side windows will be the way to save your life. Even if submerged in water, it will be the best escape plan for you.
The main windshield is made to crack and splinter and the side windows are made to shatter on impact if hit on the sides.
So, when you try to break a window, no matter whether the car is submerged or not the middle of the glass will be the hardest to break. You should always carry a blunt object like a hammer, screwdriver or a wrench in the car as these small objects can save your life.
Water pressure can add up to 850 pounds of force against the windows and that is why hitting the middle of the window can be more useless. You only need to aim for the corners and the windows will break down filling the car with water and giving you a path to swim to safety.
You have to be mindful of the time as the deeper he car sinks, more pressure it will create and therefore, do everything quickly and smoothly!
