Put safety first

1.First and Foremost:slow down! It takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather.

2.Stay toward the middle lanes-water tends to pool in the outside lanes.

3.Maintain proper following distance (3 seconds rule). This needs to be increased in wet weather.

4.Drive in the tracks of a car ahead of you.

5. Don’t follow large trucks or buses too closely.

6.Avoid using your brakes;if possible take your foot off the accelerator to slow down.

7.Turn your headlights on even in a light rain,or in gloomy foggy or overcast conditions.

8. Before it starts to rain,replace old or brittle wipers

9.Never drive through moving water if you can’t see the ground through it;your car could be swept off the road.

10.When driving through a puddle of uncertain dept,go slow. If it’s deeper then the bottom of your doors,turn around and find another route.Deep water can cause serious damage to a modern car’s electrical system.
