Rainy Summer Days
The rainy summer days are ahead of us. We need to drive smart in stormy conditions. It ismore difficult to see other cars and the road. Practicing extra safety precautions during a rainy road trip will keep you and others safe.
Keep the proper distance from the car ahead of you. It takes longer to stop in wet weather. The 3 second rule or longer should be followed. Slow down your driving speed. Accidents happen more in wet weather.
Turn your headlights on even in a light rain. They will help other drivers see you. If your vehicle has daytime running lights you still should put them on, so vehicles behind you can see you better.
Check your tires frequently. Bald tires significantly decrease your traction on wet roadways. If your tires are bald, the water has no place to go and you end up driving on water, and have a chance of hydroplaning.
Gerber Collision and Glass would like you to enjoy your summer with your family and friends and keep safe on the roadways.
