Basically posting this because I nearly crashed my car 3 times whilst driving from York to London yesterday along the A1(M). As you are all aware there is a massive storm, and the tail end of it hit York yesterday. My dad arrived in York after waking up at 5am to help me move the rest of my stuff back to London as I've finished uni. So my dad wanted to get to York early and leave asap- which we did. I was the lead car for a while and then it started to rain lightly and then harder. Those of you who drive on motorways know that when it rains extremely hard, you can hardly see shit and it's worse when you're behind/over-taking lorries as the spray is literally diabolical. So I've reduced my speed a fair bit now, but still going faster than those in the left lane (2 lane A road) so there was no point in me going over to it. I literally struggled to see, plus I was constantly looking at my mirror to check on how my dad was doing as he was following me. As I did that, I hit a massive pool of water that caused my car to swerve and skid toward the barrier. My dad had said that my back wheels had cause my car to turn the angle of my car for a second. It really shook me up. So after about 10 mins I calmed down a bit and reduced my speed a bit more to about 50mph and had switched to the left lane as it was clear. It was still pissing down with rain and again, I hit a massive puddle that caused my car to swerve toward the left hand barrier. My phone wasn't working so my dad couldn't phone me to tell me to pull over at the next services. He signalled his lights and I knew he wanted me to pull over, so I just held into the left lane and waited for a junction. I tried to stay as close to the white line that separates the lanes apart as possible without making it dangerous for the over taking drivers, then all of a sudden my car skidded for about 2 seconds (I'm still not quite sure what it was) and again I nearly lost control. I just pulled over at the services to calm down a bit as it was quite scary. My dad decided to take the lead and he got the luck of the draw because the rain stopped and it became sunny and hot. What are other peoples experiences?
