Before You Move!
Make sure that your vehicle parts / accessories are in working condition
Replace old or brittle wipers
Make sure that you have enough Fuel in your fuel tank
While on the Move!
First and foremost: slow down! It takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather
Stay toward the middle lanes – water tends to pool in the outer lanes
Drive on the tracks of a vehicle ahead of you
Don’t follow large trucks or buses too closely. Their tyres splash water that ultimately obstructs your vision
Be more alert. Watch out for brake lights in front of you
Turn your headlights on even in a light rain, or in gloomy, foggy or overcast conditions
Avoid off-road driving
Never drive beyond the limits of visibility
Never drive through moving water if you can’t see the ground through it; your car could be swept off the road.
When driving through a puddle of uncertain depth, go slow. If it’s deeper than the bottom of your doors, turn around and find another route
If possible, stay off the road during heavy thunderstorms
Always stay in touch with Weather page / radio channel / news bulletin
