Tips for Driving Safely in the Rain

The start of spring means lots of rain--more in some places than other. It's important to know how to drive when it's raining. Rainfall contributes to over 1 million crashes annually, and we at Carbone Automotive Group want you to be safe. Here's some tips to help you drive safely out in the rain.

Driving in the rain safe starts with preventative measures. Make sure your windshield wipers don't streak. They should also clear any liquid in a single movement. Check that all your lights are functioning correctly so that drivers can see you when it's raining hard.

While you're driving, your headlights should be on. It's better to stay away from cruise control, and keep all your attention on the road. Make sure to leave enough space between you and another car, and get the right tires to help prevent hydroplaning.

If you skid, make sure to steer in the direction of the skid, and try not to slam the brakes. Our dealership is in Yorkville, NY, and if you need help preparing your car for the rainy seasons, we're here for you. Visit our service center today!
