Driving in the rain

Here are a few tips for driving in the rain:

  • Slow down and reduce your speed to allow extra braking time and improve tire traction on wet roads.
  • Turn on your headlights and windshield wipers to improve visibility and help you see other vehicles and potential hazards on the road.
  • Increase your following distance to give yourself more time to react to sudden stops or changes in traffic.
  • Avoid sudden turns or lane changes, as wet roads can cause your vehicle to slip or hydroplane.
  • Be aware of standing water on the road, as it can hide potholes or other hazards.
  • Use your brakes gently to avoid skidding or losing control of your vehicle..
  • Avoid driving through flooded areas, as water can cause damage to your engine or other critical systems.
  • If you do start to hydroplane, do not brake or turn suddenly. Instead, gently ease off the accelerator and straighten the wheel to regain control of your vehicle.
 

Overall, it is essential to drive carefully and cautiously in the rain to avoid accidents and ensure the safety of yourself and other road users.
