Driving in the Wind
Gusty wind can be one of the trickier driving situations to deal with, especially with erratic gusts that rapidly change direction and intensity.
The main goal when driving in heavy wind is to keep the car as stable as possible (a goal in all driving situations, of course).
One factor to consider is speed. Slowing down reduces the reaction forces necessary to counteract the wind. Good judgment is needed to determine how fast is safe.
SLOW DOWN. KEEP TWO HANDS ON THE WHEEL. WATCH the ROAD AHEAD.
