Stay Safe in the Rain With These Two Tips

 

No one likes peering through a windshield full of water or hydroplaning on a puddle when it's raining. It can be downright dangerous, especially if you're not prepared. But there are some preventative measures that you can take to ensure that your drive is safe, and at Budd Baer Mazda, we want you to have the best techniques at hand, so here are a few tips.

One of the easiest ways to ensure that you're doing well is slow down when it's raining. Make sure that there's plenty of distance between you and the other drivers so that you have enough room to see and stop. When it's raining, it's more difficult to see, which can slow your reaction time.

Also, make sure that the depth on your tire tread is adequate. One of the more important jobs of your tire tread is to help displace water. If the tread is gone, it's more likely that you'll hydroplane.
