Here is some simple advice, taken from the Colorado Driver Manual, on what to do in the event of a tire blowout. You may want to pass this along to your drivers as a friendly reminder. 

  • Hold the steering wheel tightly, and keep the vehicle going straight. Slow down gradually.
  • Take your foot off the gas pedal and use the brakes lightly. 
  • Do not stop on the road if at all possible. Pull off the road in a safe place.
