- Check equipment. Throughout the season, monitor your tires for tread wear and proper inflation, replace worn wiper blades and top off your windshield washer fluid as needed.
- Wait if possible. Avoid going out early in a storm. Streets often are slickest during the first hour of rain when road oils and water combine to create a slippery surface.
- Give yourself extra room. Rule number one: Slow down. If the road is wet, allow at least twice as much following distance as on dry pavement.
- Don’t depend on technology. Antilock braking systems may actually lengthen stopping distances, and four-wheel drive won’t prevent hydroplaning on water or improve braking on slick roads.
