Wet Weather Driving
Your odds for a collision in wet weather increase dramatically. Hard rain or snow can limit visibility so you can’t see the edges of the road, traffic signs or other vehicles. Slowing down is the best overall policy for wet weather driving.
See & Be Seen
- Keep your windshield clean, inside and out.
- Keep your wipers clean and in good condition.
- Keep headlights clean.
- Increase the following distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you.
- Don’t drive through deep water on a flooded road.
- Make sure you have adequate, full tread and properly inflated tires which allow water to escape from under the tires.
- Avoid using cruise control. It can be dangerous in wet driving conditions.
