Rain Driving Tips

April is the time for rain showers so here are some helpful hints to keep you safe while driving in the rain:

  • Keep both hands on the steering wheel.
  • Turn on your headlights.
  • Let off the gas if you start to hydroplane.
  • Avoid using your brakes if possible.
  • Drive slowly through any puddles.
  • Reduce your speed. It takes longer to stop on wet roads.
  • Avoid cruise control.
  • Never drive through moving water.
  • Drive in the tracks of the car ahead of you.
  • Make sure there is plenty of distance between you and the car in front of you.

Be Safe.
