Tips for driving in rain


Although, summer is here, the last couple of days saw quite a lot of rainfall across the country. Call it bad luck, or face the facts and accept that it’s simply part of life in the UK.

The truth remains however, that driving in the rain can be very dangerous, especially if you aren’t prepared. Staggering numbers of people are involved in accidents each year, caused by careless drivers. Unideal driving conditions are no excuse to endanger other people’s lives though, which is why we’ve decided to put together a short guide containing tips to driving in the rain.

Perhaps, the most important thing you have to make sure when driving in the rain, is that your windscreen wipers are working. We’ve mentioned this on numerous occasions; however, when it comes to driving in the rain, you have to ensure that you can actually see the road. This why, it’s crucial that you improve your visibility, by checking the wipers.

If they are not working and need replacing, get that sorted as soon as possible. Don’t drive around in the middle of a rainstorm without functional wipers, as you will likely cause, or be involved in, an accident.

Another very important to check are your headlights. It tends to get quite dark when it’s raining, with dark clouds covering the sun, so you might have to use your lights at some point during your travels.

It would be very irresponsible to drive around without functional headlights, so make sure they are working before setting off, especially if you’re going to travel a long distance.

Checking your tyres, is also quite vital. If they are old and run down, they’re not going to help you on the slippery roads. If your tyres need replacing, once again, get it sorted before setting off.

Many people choose to ignore these simple steps; however, trust us – it’s not worth it.

Even if you have to spend some money, on getting your vehicle up to shape, it’s definitely better than ending up in fatal accident caused by carelessness.

Safety should always remain a priority, and we hope we were able to help you with our simple steps to improve your chances of getting to your destination safely, during heavy rain.
