Tis the season for afternoon showers. We are entering the rainy season in Amherst and our team at Virginia Select Auto wants to make sure all of our customers are aware of some helpful tips for driving in the rain.

One of the best things you can do when driving in the rain is just slow down. By slowing down and allowing for more space between your car and the car in front of you, you give yourself a better chance of being able to stop in case of an emergency. Another great tip is to not drive with cruise control on. We know that it can be tedious on longer drives, but making sure you are as alert as possible in inclement weather can help avoid a disastrous situation. The last top tip is to make sure your car's wear items are changed when they need to be changed. Items like tires, brakes, and calipers don't work as effectively in the rain so if you need to get the replaced don't hesitate.

If you want to have your car inspected or serviced feel free to stop by Virginia Select Auto. We will make sure you are driving safe this rainy season.
