Rainy days are heading back to the Houston area, and as you prep for the stormy weather, take some time to brush up on your driving tips in the rain. Here are a few ways you can stay safe on the road when it’s slippery!
Turn On Your Lights
This might seem like a no brainer, but sometimes it’s easy to forget to turn on your lights whenever a heavy rain starts while you’re driving. Rain can reduce your vision while driving, cause your windows to fog up, or it could just be raining so hard that you can’t see very far. Turning on your lights when it’s raining is vital for the safety of those around you, and allows other vehicles to see you properly.
Don’t Drown, Turn Around
Driving through water is often very tricky, and is difficult to decipher just exactly how high the levels are. If you drive across a big patch of water, and you are unsure of how deep it is, play it safe and turn around. It’s always better to avoid driving through water altogether!
Even if it’s only drizzling outside, it’s better to reduce your speed when driving in the rain. The roads will become slippery, and they are the most slick following a rain. The oils have time to seep out of the grounds and make the road more slippery, and easier to skid on.
