When you have to drive in the wind be sure to watch out for any objects that could fly towards you and stay as far away from semi trailers or larger vehicles because if you're in the lane next to those large vehicles then the wind could potentially blow the semi trailer or large vehicle over and it could land on top of your vehicle and crush you and hurt you bad or even kill you.

So if possible stay away from those large vehicles and semi trailers when driving in windy conditions especially high winds.

Also keep both hands on the steering wheel and drive below the speed limit.

When the wind is blowing the tail winds will increase your speed by pushing your vehicle forward so drive slower than the speed limit.

If you don't have to drive when it's windy then stay put until the wind is gone as it can be dangerous driving in the wind.
