Safety at the wheel is essential for any driver, and, on occasions, we can find factors beyond our control that can make it more difficult for us.
Driving in the rain, for example, is one of those times when all caution is little, as the roads are wet and visibility is reduced.
At RCC Auto Transport, we care about your safety and, therefore, we want to give you 10 tips for driving in the rain. Prepared? We start engines!
Tips For Driving in the Rain
First of all, common sense. Since that, when it comes to driving, is paramount. If your car is not in good condition or you do not defend yourself fully on the road on wet days, it is better to take public transport or, if you can, postpone your trip for another time.
Driving in the rain is not pleasant for many drivers, and if you do not feel good in that situation, do not do it. Your safety and that of others will thank you.
2. Safety distance
On rainy days the braking reaction is lower and, for this reason, it is advisable to increase the safety distance from other vehicles. This way, you will have more room for maneuver if you need it.
3. No rush
Another tip for driving in the rain is that, wherever you go, don't be in a rush to get there. It is better to be a little late than not to arrive or to have to go to the hospital first, right?
So do not forget to slow down your march until you feel comfortable and do not pose a danger to other drivers or yourself.
Remember that visibility on rainy days is much lower, and if you go at high speed, your reaction time will be less.
4. Avoid braking
With the rain, braking is a real problem. You can skid, cause a collision. Precisely for this reason, it is recommended not to brake abruptly but to gradually slow down until your car comes to a complete stop. It is the safest way to drive in the rain.
5. Beware of distractions
As a general rule, when we are behind the wheel, we must be very careful with distractions, but on rainy days, it is a priority to keep your eyes on the road, your hands on the wheel, and ready to maneuver as necessary.
6. Eliminate mist
With condensation, the windows of our car can fog up and become more opaque. For this reason, remember to activate the vehicle's air conditioning systems or even keep the window open for a couple of fingers.
7. Lights and action!
Do not forget to keep your low beams or dipped beams on throughout the journey.
8. Avoid asphalt marks
In the rain, the road takes on humidity, and the wheels of our car lose grip. Therefore, be careful if you step on the lines or white marks on the road, as they could cause you an unwanted scare.
If you find yourself in this situation, don't be nervous. The key is to stay calm, not jerk, and gently lift your foot off the gas.
10. Keep your car in perfect condition.
As we always say, regular maintenance on your car is essential, especially when driving in the rain. You must check brakes, engine, wheels, windows, windshield wipers ... Preparing your car for the rain will give you much more security.
