Tips for driving in rain

rain on road

 

  • Most obvious: slow down! It takes longer to stop in wet weather.
  • Stay toward the middle lanes – water tends to pool in the outside lanes.
  •  Increase your following distance.
  • Drive in the tracks of a car ahead of you.
  • Don’t follow large trucks or buses too closely. The spray they create reduces your vision. Take care when passing them as well.
  • Avoid using your brakes; if possible, take your foot off the accelerator to slow down.
  • Turn your headlights on.
  • Before it starts to rain, replace old or brittle wipers.
