Significantly Dangerous: Driving a Honda Accord While Carrying a Heavy Load on the Roof

One Honda Accord driver found it to be extremely perilous to drive with a heavy load on the roof.

After starting to drive up a ramp, the Accord was seen on camera stopping because the rooftop load nearly blocked the entire back windscreen.

While no one was hurt in the accident, it did raise concerns about the viability of driving with heavy roof loads.

Carrying too much weight on the roof of your car can reduce your ability to steer and brake, increase drag,

and make handling difficult in windy conditions.

It's important to remember this when loading up your car and to keep an eye out for other drivers,

so be sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the maximum weight allowed on your roof.
