How to Drive the Car Safely in the Rain

This guide to driving safely in the rain was developed by Jaguar Fox Valley.

When you turn on the windshield wipers in the rain, you should also turn on the headlights. This makes your vehicle easier for other drivers to see in bad weather.

Try to slow down two or more seconds once the rain starts falling. This is going to open up the distances between you and other vehicles. Not only will this help to improve reaction times, you are going to be less likely to slide into another car if you lose control of the car.

Turn your car's cruise control off when the road surface gets wet. You don't want the car to hydroplane because it will be harder to maintain your lane and keep your vehicle from sliding into oncoming traffic. To keep your car as safe as possible on the road, visit Jaguar Fox Valley for a complete inspection.
