RAINY SEASON DRIVING TIPS


Driving in the *rain* can be challenging at times, but most importantly, it can potentially lead to dangerous accidents if you are *not* careful. Thatís why we wanted to share some _simple and useful tips_ to help you get to your destination safely.

1. Stay near the middle lanes:
Water tends to collect on the side of the road, and itís important to avoid puddles and large pools of water since they can cause a loss of steering or braking control when they prevent direct contact between tires and the road. This is called _hydroplaning or aquaplaning_.

2. Let the car in front work for you:
The car in front of you is displacing and pushing water away and creating a better driving surface for you. Try to use it by keeping your steering and tires aligned with the car in front of you while maintaining a safe distance.

3. Donít use _cruise_ control:
Braking on wet roads requires your full attention and cruise control can slow your reaction time to brake and accelerate.

4. Listen to the rain like a mindful ninja
Listening to the rain hitting your car helps develop a better sense of the weather, so you can drive accordingly. It can also be kind of soothing and relaxing. Itís OK to listen to traffic and weather reports or play some music to brighten up a rainy day, but make sure itís not too loud.

5. Avoid driving near busses and trucks:
Big vehicles make big splashes that can hit your windshield and momentarily block your sight, so try not to drive close to them.

6. Test and dry your brakes:
Wet brake pads have less power. If you drove over a deep puddle, keep testing your brakes by stepping on and off them to help dry the pads.

7. Donít _slam_ on the brakes:
If your car is hydroplaning or slipping, donít step on the brakes abruptly to stop your slipping vehicle. This can potentially make your car spin even more. Grip your steering wheel firmly and slow down little by little until your car is under control again.

Remembering these simple guidelines will help you be *safer* on wet roads.

Drive Safely, Think of Family_

Oh Yes...Just remember another good tip if you are equipped with ABS...you can slam the brakes hard..but don't yank the steering. It's a reaction to yank the steering when you slam the brakes. The trick is to steer like normal when you hit the brakes hard .otherwise you will spin and render the ABS useless.

Happy driving...

If you have glaring sight during driving in rain, try wearing sunglasses. It helps reduce glare. Works at night too.
