All Drivers Need to Know How to Drive Safely in Rainy Weather

Regardless of where you live, it is likely that you will have to drive in rainy, wet or slippery conditions. Therefore, it is important that you know how to do so safely. Ideally, you won't try to drive on roads that are flooded or look like they may be flooded.

If a road is blocked off, do not attempt to drive through or around any barriers placed by local authorities. You should check your tires before driving in rainy weather to ensure that they are properly inflated and have enough tread. Tires with inadequate tread may be at a higher risk for hydroplaning.

This is because the tread is what allows the tire to push water away and maintain better contact with the road. Furthermore, bald or damaged tires may result in reduced gas mileage, which could result in paying more for gas regardless of weather conditions.
