Ever since I was a young driver, my mom has expressed the importance of not driving through mud puddles during a rainstorm.
- I believe it sounds prefer a insane thing for someone to talk about frequently, however my mom was in a car that almost got carried away in a storm and since then she has been certain ly scared of Summer storms.
I do not share the same fear as my mom, however I try to be careful. I was out on a service call Last weekwhen it started raining and I remembered the words of my mother in my head. I avoided all of the puddles on the road. I got to the address for the A/C service customer. She was near the back of the condos. About halfway back the driveway, there was a big puddle of water. I paused for a brief minute and then the people I was with and I drove the truck right through the puddle. The puddle was much deeper than I expected. My front left tire became stuck in the puddle and I couldn’t get out. The water had caused injure to the road and a small sinkhole opened up in that area. I had to call a tow truck to get my labor automobile out of the hole. It was a terribly embarrassing situation to occur on a property where our clients reside. I would have done just about anything to avoid that situation. The a single time I do not take my mom’s advice turns out to be the a single time that a mud puddle caused a poor amount of injure.
