How to Drive Safely in the Rainy Season?

Some stats show that more accidents occur in the rain than in snow. Well, it shows that many drivers aren’t good at driving properly on the wet roads and end up failing to respect the rain. In that case, we have come up with some useful tips on how to drive safely on the wet surface. So let’s dive in:

Slow Down

driving

It might sound obvious; people don’t practice it. Keep in mind! Slowing down is the safest thing to do while driving in the rain. It’s not just about the reduced visibility that makes it harder to detect hazards. But also, braking and steering on the wet surface need distance due to reduced friction between the road and tires. If you buy the premium car tyres online, the braking in the wet would be about half as effective as on the dry road.

Turn on the lights

Some countries have laws that say, “Switch on your headlights if your wipers are on”. This is one of the most basic things to do to have a safe driving during inclement weather. Just turn the lights on so that you can see clearly. This rule isn’t just for the driver so that they can see the road, but also, it’s for that other driver who can see your car if the headlights are on. It’s quite simple; See and be seen.

Hydroplaning

Let’s conduct a little experiment to understand this. Just lay 4-slices of toast on the floor in the approximate placements of your tires. Only those 4-contact patches will be holding your 2-tonne car to the road. Now just imagine the scenario when the road is covered in water. When these 4-points surf atop the water, it’s known as hydroplaning.

In this situation, the car feels squirrelly, and steering would feel quite light. So just stay calm and see where you want the car to go. Ease on the brakes and steering wheel where you find the less water on the road.

Proper Inflation and Tire’s Health

It goes without saying that you should use the tires of good quality that last longer and can withstand tough road conditions. But since we are talking about driving in the rain and moist surface, proper inflation matters a lot too.

Tires lose 1 PSI/month so just make sure that you check them regularly to avoid any possible blowout. Some people, unknowingly, overinflate their car tire that’s not a good practice to get along with. So just don’t overinflate. If you are wondering what’s the right pressure, just find it on the inside pillar of the drivers-side door.

Dry the brakes

While driving on the wet roads, you can’t expect your brakes to be dry anymore. Some cars have that functionality of automatically touching pads to rotors so that the water could be scrubbed out. This leads to adding heat to the rotor to remove the water. In case, your car doesn’t have that automatic feature, just do it yourself by gently touching the brakes right after splashing through a wet spot.
