Wet weather driving safety tips to follow

As one of our New Jersey readers, you know that the fall and winter seasons can bring inclement weather to the area. While you may enjoy this at times, it can pose a big challenge if you find yourself behind the wheel.

Here are some wet weather driving safety tips to follow at all times:

  • Slow down. If nothing else, you want to slow your pace. The slower you drive, the easier it is to control your vehicle.
  • Leave more space. Along with slowing down, do your best to leave as much space as possible between your vehicle and others on the road.
  • Don't use cruise control. As convenient as it may be, it increases the likelihood of an accident on wet roadways.
  • Respond to a skid by steering in the direction you want your vehicle to travel.
  • Keep an eye out for other drivers who may not be taking the weather into consideration.

These wet weather driving safety tips can go a long way in helping you avoid trouble on the road. There is no guarantee you will never be part of a crash, but you should be doing whatever you can to prevent trouble.

If another person strikes your vehicle, maybe because they were driving too fast in a rainstorm, immediately move to safety and call 911. You'll feel much better once police and an ambulance arrive at the scene.

Once you are stabilized and understand your injuries, you can then learn more about the cause of the accident, your legal rights and the steps that you need to take next.
