Safe Driving in the rain requires Proper Maintenance and adjustments to your vehicle’s operation to prevent sliding, skidding, or colliding. Keeping your equipment maintained is a big advantage. Windshield wipers, exterior lights, brakes, and tires are all Key Factors – ensure they stay reliable.
Slow down! Wet Roads can reduce your traction, or grip, by about a third, so you should also reduce your speed by a third. Use your windshield wipers, turn on your lights, stay focused, and keep both hands on the wheel. Avoid slamming on the brakes, take turns slower, and do not use cruise control. Turn off the radio and ignore your cell phone. Arrive alive!
