Wet Weather Driving

For some reason driving in the rain is considered a scary task but with a little more concentration it's just as easy as driving in dry weather. The streets become busier and the roads become more slippery due to the water itself and all the oils and fluids which decide to rise to the surface. Road signs also become difficult to see and sometimes the car even decides to fog up which reduces your visibility. It's no surprise that wet weather can be challenging to drive in but you can certainly get comfortable doing it by being more cautious and alert.

Here are some tips put together by our instructors to keep you safe whilst driving in rainy conditions:

  • Give yourself more time to travel to where you need to go. This will allow you to respond to hazards before it become too late and also help you cope with traffic which happens to get more heavier during wet weather.

  • Take extra care in how you manoeuvre and drive your vehicle. Avoid accelerating and braking suddenly.

  • Turn on your headlights to make sure you have good visibility outside and also it allows other road users to see you.

  • Judge your distance and give yourself more than a 3 second gap between yourself and the vehicle in front of you.

  • Keep an eye out for pedestrians and other road users-people become distracted by trying to run and avoid getting wet or opening their umbrella which blocks their vision.

  • Prevent your mirrors from fogging up by making sure they are always cleaned. You can also turn on your AC to reduce fog building up on your front windscreen.
