When it's time to head out, keep a few of these wet weather driving tips in mind.
- Prevent Foggy Windows: If your windows are fogging up, use the air conditioner to dehumidify the air inside of your vehicle. If you don't have an air conditioning system, open the rear windows a crack to allow air to circulate. Learn more about our Air Conditioning Service to help maintain a comfortable temperature for you and your vehicle.
- Drive Slower: Slowing down on wet roads is crucial. A wet road surface will offer the driver less grip compared to a dry road surface. Plus, braking distances can double and the ability to steer around an obstacle can be reduced.
- Stay Back from Other Drivers: Keep a further distance from the vehicle in front of you since braking distances can be longer on wet roads. Staying back will also take you away from the tire spray of the vehicle in front of you, giving you better visibility.
- Pay Attention to Your Surroundings: Vision technique is paramount to safe driving. Look further up the road and always look to where you want to be going.
- Avoid Sudden Movements: Jerky or rushed steering can cause loss of control, especially on rain-slicked roads. Drive with smooth steering inputs.
