Safety Tips for Driving in Wet Conditions
1. Star Alert
Stay alert! Stay focused!
Pay attention to what is going on around you on the road. You can increase your visibility by turning on your headlights.
2. In very heavy rain, stop!
When visibility is so poor that the edges of the road or other vehicles can’t be seen at a safe distance, pull over and put on your emergency Hazard lights and wait for the rain to ease off.
3. Drive Slower
In rainy/wet weather drive slower than usual to avoid any mishaps or accidents on the road.
4. Beware hydroplaning (sliding)
When excess water sits on top of the road, tires can lose traction and start sliding causing your vehicle to lose control.
