Keep Your Grip on Wet Pavement With These Driving Tips

We have a mission to help motorists practice safe driving habits. It is especially important to take caution when you are driving in rainy weather. More than one million automobile accidents occur each year because of wet pavement. Use our tips to optimize safety the next time you're driving on wet roads.

The best way to avoid hydroplaning is to slow down when the roads are wet. Your tires can lose contact with the road when your vehicle is traveling as slow as 35 mph. It is also suggested to have the inflation and thread depth of your tires checked routinely.

If you do start to hydroplane, try to stay calm and keep the vehicle moving in the direction that you want it to go. Avoid slamming on the brakes when you're responding to a skid to help you maintain control, and you should also allow for plenty of following distance between you and the car ahead.
