We are coming into the rainy season once again, just before winter hits. The weather begins to cool down and hurricane season comes to effect with the mix of the warm and cool weather. Any little bit of rain can affect driving conditions. Even just the lightest bit can coat the road just enough to make it slick.

The best thing to do when there is rain, is to slow down, take caution, use your headlights and windshield wipers. Along with following these few tips, some other precautions to take include staying a safe distance away from the cars in front of you. If one was to quickly stop, or hit a wet patch, things could go very wrong. Speaking of wet patches, there could be certain areas on the road where water tends to build up, and can result in hydroplaning, where your car slides uncontrollably. Watch for these areas, and make sure you’re paying attention. Windows also tend to fog up when it rains. Mixed with the humidity, the ventilation system helps out a lot in this situation.

Overall, Driving in inclement weather can be dangerous, so in times like these, paying attention to your surroundings and taking precaution is very important. Any quick small reaction can turn  into something serious
