JAF Typhoon No. 10 is approaching! Please refrain from driving in strong winds and heavy rains! -In the past heavy rain disasters, there are many requests for relief due to flooding, etc.- …………………………………………………………………………………………… JAF (Japan Automobile Federation, Chairman Kazuhiro Fujii) has received a forecast of approaching typhoon No. 10 that has developed into an extremely large scale for the first time in two years, and is calling on drivers to refrain from driving in strong winds and heavy rains. Typhoon No. 10 is likely to approach and land in western Japan with strong power from the 14th (Wednesday) to 15th (Thursday) with a storm zone. Also, on the Pacific side due to the approaching typhoon, there is a possibility that the total precipitation will be heavy rain exceeding 1000 mm in many places, so be careful of storms, flooding in low land, river flooding and flooding and intense gusts of wind . In JAF, the sudden increase in the number of requests for relief and the contents of the requests have been published, calling for attention. Vehicle trouble due to Typhoon No. 21 in 2018, most often tire puncture From September 4 (Tue) to 5 (Wed), Typhoon No. 21 caused major damage throughout the country, mainly in the Kansai and Shikoku areas. The number of road services received in Osaka and Hyogo prefectures for three days from September 4 (Tuesday) to September 6 (Thursday), which seemed to have had a significant impact, was 1,930 in Osaka Prefecture (the number of the same period last year) : 1,346 cases), and Hyogo prefecture increased to 1,040 cases (791 cases in the same period of the previous year).
In particular, there were 782 tire punctures in Osaka. Since there were 252 cases in the same period of the previous year, it was about 30.3% compared to the same period of the previous year. This is thought to be caused by puncture caused by the strong typhoon that scattered debris on the road. When the typhoon has passed, stay alert and check the road conditions when driving. There are also many troubles that break the glass. There were 186 cases in Osaka Prefecture (the number of cases in the same period last year: 1) and 11 cases in Hyogo Prefecture (the number of cases in the same period in the previous year: 0). It is possible. Please avoid unnecessary and urgent driving when a typhoon is approaching. If the glass breaks while driving, it is not only dangerous for traffic accidents but also serious injury. In the heavy rains in West Japan in 2018, requests for relief in Hiroshima, Okayama, and Ehime prefectures were 300% Due to the heavy rains in western Japan, especially in western Japan, there were 4,345 requests for relief from drivers in the three prefectures of Hiroshima, Okayama, and Ehime, which were the most damaged (period: Friday, July 6) ~ 10th (Tue)). This is about 300% compared to the same period of the previous year, and it can be seen that many requests were received due to the effects of troubles caused by heavy rain.

Risk of vehicle fire. If it is submerged, be careful when handling the vehicle. Vehicles that have been flooded due to flood damage may cause a fire due to electrical leakage in the electrical system (engine, headlight, etc.). The precautions for handling submerged vehicles are as follows. 1. Do not turn the engine key suddenly or press the engine button (push button). 2 If you open the hood and are immersed in water, Please remove the negative terminal of the battery to prevent fire. 3. Insulate the removed terminal so that it does not come into contact with the battery. 4. Avoid touching hybrid vehicles (HV) and electric vehicles (EV).
