3 Tips for Safe Driving in the Rain

Driving in the rain is something that people have to do almost weekly in some areas of the country. Some rain is worse than others, and though while most instances of driving in the rain is nothing to worry about too much, it can be very dangerous in some cases. By following these three steps, you will reduce the chance of a car accident due to driving in the rain.

Slow Down

Most people driving today are in such a rush that they speed well over the limit. While most people will slow down a little bit during bad weather, some people still do not slow down enough. Make sure you are going at most the speed limit during a bad rain storm, if not a lot slower.

Turn off Cruise Control and Beware of Hydroplaning

Cruise control can actually be very dangerous while driving through the rain. When hydroplaning with cruise control on, the car actually continues to accelerate, meaning the car will likely be out of control for a longer duration of time. Also, make sure to simply be aware of hydroplaning. All it takes is 1/12 of an inch of water and a speed above 35 miles per hour to hydroplane, so be careful. If you do happen to hydroplane, stay in a straight line and do not steer until all control has been regained.

Turn on the Headlights

If your headlights are not already turned on, make sure they are on. It helps with not only your own visibility, but also for other drivers to be able to see you, reducing the risk of a head-on collision. In most states, it is the law to have your headlights on during a storm.
