Rainy Weather: How to Drive Safely

Rainy weather increases your risk of being injured in a car accident. Fortunately, there are things you can do to reduce that risk. You can take steps to protect yourself, your passengers, and your fellow drivers.

Confirm that your car's safety features are in excellent shape. Check your wipers, replacing them if they appear torn, warped, or otherwise damaged. If necessary, inflate your tires, and look for worn treads. Confirm that your lights are functioning perfectly.

When it rains, drive slowly to avoid hydroplaning, and leave extra room between yourself and others. If you skid, don't brake hard. Calmly try to steer the car in the direction you wish you travel.

As the rainy season approaches, don't be caught off guard. Swing by our service center at Virginia Select Auto in Amherst, VA today, and let our staff prepare your car for rough weather.
