Driving Tips for Wet Roads

Driving in the rain can be dangerous; in fact thousands of car accidents each year are caused by wet driving conditions.

Routinely Check Your Tires

It is a good idea to always check your tires before you hit the road. To ensure your tires are working at their best, make sure you do the following routine maintenance:

  • Keep your tires properly inflated. The correct air pressure for your tires is specified by the vehicle manufacturer and can be found on the vehicle placard located on door edge, door post, glove box door or fuel door. It is also listed in the owners manual. The number listed on the side of the tire is not the recommended air pressure for your tire - it is the maximum air pressure for the tire. You should check your tire's air pressure at least once a month.

  • Check the tires tread depth. Tires should have minimum 1/16 inch tread depth. Proper tread depth will help prevent skids and hydroplanning.

  • Have your tires rotated at least every 6,000 - 8,000 miles. This will aid in detecting alignment problems and help prevent irregular wear.

Slow Down

As rain falls, it mixes with grime and oil on the road creating slick conditions perfect for skids. The best way to avoid skidding is to slow down. Driving at a slower pace allows more of the tires tread to make contact with the road, which leads to better traction.

Recover From a Skid

Skids can even happen to the most cautious drivers. If your car does skid, remember not to slam on the brakes, and do not pump the brakes if you have an anti-lock braking system (ABS). Instead apply pressure to the brakes in a firm manner and steer the car in the direction of the skid.

Keep a Safe Distance

It takes about three times longer to break on wet roads than on dry roads. Since more distance is required to brake, it is important not to tailgate. Keep a little more than two car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you.

Recover from Hydroplaning

When it rains, water creates a barrier between the road and your tires. The liquid film that forms can cause you to loose traction and glide or hydroplane across the waters surface. If this happens, do not hit the brakes. It is better to take your foot off the gas, hold the steering in place, and lightly apply the breaks. If you have a manual transmission, push in the clutch and let the car slow down on its own.

 

 

When raindrops hit the windshield, it's your cue to stay alert, slow down and ramp up your safety with the following techniques:
 

Reducing your speed is important for multiple reasons:

  • Rainy days tend to be darker and sometimes foggy, reducing your ability to see what's ahead.

  • You need more time to stop your car on wet pavement. During the first few hours of a rainstorm, accumulated engine oil and grease are lifted off the road, creating a slick surface until the oil is washed away.

  • Slowing down increases your traction, since more of your tire tread will be touching the pavement.

  • Puddles often build up on the road during a heavy rain. Slowing down in wet weather reduces the chances of skidding or hydroplaning, while making it easier to recover from an unexpected situation.
