Car hood up

If you are driving and the hood of your car flies open, do the following:

  • Slow down.
  • Try to look underneath the hood at the road ahead.
  • If that is not possible put your head out the window and look around the hood.
  • Use the painted center line or lane markings as a guide.
  • As soon as possible, pull off the road, put your hazard lights on, and then deal with the hood problem.
