You probably know the old saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, that’s proving to be true with all of the rain and thunderstorms that North Carolina has been experiencing this month. While rain can be a nuisance, it can also make it dangerous to drive. However, sometimes we have to get where we need to go, despite the weather. So, that’s why it’s important to follow these safe driving tips for driving in the rain.
Routine maintenance is key to driving safety at all times, but especially when driving in the rain. If your tires are worn out or your breaks aren’t working or one of your headlights is broken, a rain storm isn’t the ideal time to find out. Have your car regularly checked by a mechanic, so when a storm hits you can rest assured that your car won’t let you down.
Be aware that it will take your car longer to brake in the rain. That means that you should maintain a safe distance from other cars and that you should begin to brake for lights and stop signs earlier than you typically would on a sunny day.
Hydroplaning is a common reason for car accidents in the rain. If you see standing water on the road, take your foot off of the gas, but avoid using your brakes. Drive slowly and cautiously through the standing water without making any sudden movements with your steering wheel.
If you can, try to stay off the road on those rainy days. However, if duty calls and you must get behind the wheel, always drive with caution.
