Rain and wet roads can make driving dangerous, especially if you’re not prepared

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

  • A heavy rainfall will make it harder to see and will increase the distance needed to stop your vehicle, so slow down.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Turn on your headlights to make it easier for others to see you.
  • Driving too fast through large puddles can affect your brakes. If you must go through puddles, try to drive through them slowly.
  • If you believe you may have gotten your brakes wet, apply them lightly while driving until normal braking operation returns.
