SAFETY TIPS for Driving in the Rain

MAY16-14

Did you know that when it’s raining with poor visibility, wearing your sunglasses helps – the rain droplets on the windscreen disappear and you get clear visibility on the road.

Another good tip – never drive in the rain with your cruise control on.  If you think you are being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain, you actually are more at risk.  If the cruise control is on, your car will begin to hydroplane when the tyres lose contact with the road, and your car will accelerate to a higher speed making you take off like an aeroplane.
