A Few Tips For Driving In The Rain

Rain is blamed for thousands of accidents yearly.When the road is wet, the film of the water on the asphalt causes tires to lose traction.

1.Allow for more travel time.
You should plan to drive at a slower pace than normal when the roads are wet. Keep in mind that traffic is likely to be moving slower as well. There's also the possibility that your preplanned route may be flooded or jammed.

2.Brake earlier and with less force
Not only does this increase the stopping distance between you and the car in front of you, it also lets the driver behind you know that you're slowing down.

3.Don't use cruise control.
Cruise control also allows drivers to be less vigilant and to take their foot away from the pedals — not a great idea when reaction time is so important.

4.Don't attempt to cross running water

5.Turn on your headlights
If your car is equipped with foglights, you may find it helpful to turn these on, as they throw a little extra light on the road while making your car easier to see.

6.Pull over and wait it out.
If it's raining so hard that you can't see the road or the car in front of you.

7.Track the car ahead of you
Let the car ahead pave a clear path, so to speak, through the water.

8.Give a truck or bus extra distance.
Their extra-large tires can create enough spray to block your vision completely.

9.Don't brake suddenly or turn the wheel
You might spin into a skid.
