Your tires handling performance, braking power and drainage become more critical in the rain. Learn about the dangers of driving on wet surfaces and some of the precautions you can take to enhance safety.
Because the accident rate for wet driving is just as high as for snow driving, drivers must be aware of the risks of wet driving for safety purposes.
A variety of abnormal conditions can occur when driving on wet roads. For example, the tire can hydroplane on the water’s surface, causing a momentary loss of direction. Also, grip is weakened as when driving on snowy roads so braking distance is lengthened.
