Driving in the rain

Rain and wet roads can make driving dangerous, especially if youТre not prepared for the slick pavement. Here are a few things to consider when driving in the rain:

Х A heavy rainfall will make it harder to see and will increase the distance needed to stop your vehicle, so slow down.

Х Keep your windshield wiping equipment in good shape. Replace your windshield wiper blades when they show signs of streaking or missing areas on the windshield.

Х If your tires are not in good condition, making a quick stop on wet pavement can cause a skid and possibly lead to an accident. Be sure your tires are in good shape.

Х Turn on your headlights to make it easier for others to see you.

Х Driving too fast through large puddles can affect your brakes. If you must go through puddles, try to drive through them slowly.

Х If you believe you may have gotten your brakes wet, apply them lightly while driving until normal braking operation returns.
