Tips for Driving Safely in Inclement Weather
- Stay alert. Stay focused. Pay attention to what is going on around you when weather conditions aren't ideal.
- Increase your visibility by turning on your headlights.
- Beware of hydroplaning. When excess water sits on top of the road, tires can lose traction and hydroplane causing your vehicle to slide uncontrollably.
- Slow down and turn off cruise control.
- Brake cautiously. One primary reason cars collide during rainstorms is because drivers slam on their brakes as if the roads were dry. The wet road causes the car to slide forward, often into the rear of another car. Brake gently and early to alert the driver behind you that you are slowing down.
- Avoid the splash. If water enters the engine compartment of your vehicle, it can damage the internal systems. Drive around large puddles and avoid running water. Once you have safely passed, tap lightly on your brake pedal to dry off your brake rotors.
