Tips For Driving On Wet Roads – Palmdale, Lancaster and Tehachapi

California Cullen Insurance Agency logo

Wet roads increase the risk of hydroplaning, which occurs when a thin layer of water separates tires from the roadway, reducing the ability to stop or steer. According to the American Safety Council, the most dangerous conditions arise during the first 10 minutes of a light rain shower, when water mixes with oil on the road to create an especially slippery surface.What You Can Do

  • Slow down when roads are wet.
  • Steer clear of puddles and standing water.
  • Avoid driving in outer lanes where water tends to accumulate.
  • Follow in the tracks left by cars ahead of you.
  • Drive in a lower gear.
  • Turn off the cruise control.
  • Avoid hard stops and sharp turns.
  • Keep your tires properly inflated and rotate them periodically.
