Advice for Wet Weather Driving

When it comes to driving in the rain, the best advice I can provide you is to establish safe distance between yourself and other commuters.  This photo was shot in between windshield wiper intervals, so make sure your windshield wipers are ON!  Also, what lane is the vehicle in by which the photo was taken?  In the RIGHT lane or the commuter lane.  Where are the other two cars?  In the LEFT lane or the fast lane.  In their defense, there are some pretty popular businesses in the area by which this photo was taken as there are grocers and banks on the left hand side of this highway; so if you plan on turning left at some point, it is plausible for the placement of your motor vehicle to be traveling within the LEFT lane.  Also and another key point when driving in the rain, turn your headlights ON!  That way other commuters have a better chance of seeing when changing lanes or entering onto the highway.  If the treadwear of your tires are “slick”, be careful as your vehicle will have a higher probability of hydroplaning.  I highly recommend an “all-season” tire if you’re in the market to replace your tires.  If you can’t afford new tires, don’t let your pride get in the way of purchasing an absolutely good set of used tires.  You’d be surprised and don’t knock it until you try it.  Be smart and save money! Bottom line:  Be safe out here on the roadways!  Take care and thanks for taking the time out of your day to read this post!
