Tips for driving safely
Make allowances for the wet weather and you will stay safe.
Drive sensibly. Avoid abrupt accelerating, braking and quick steering. Most skidding is caused by sudden stops and turns.
Be aware when driving. Your inattention may cause you to brake hard or make quick turns.
Allow extra distance for braking. Your car needs more stopping distance on slick roads.
Do not allow tyres to wear down too far. As tread depth approaches inches, adhering to a wet road is sharply reduced.
Cloudy weather reduces visibility so use extra caution when passing other vehicles.
Maintain a minimum distance of four to eight seconds between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
If your vehicle skids, do not hit the brakes. Ease off of the accelerator and steer into the direction of the skid.
