Wet Weather Should Slow You Down Safely

Almost anywhere you might live, wet weather is a reality at least part of the year. Rain, slush, and other wet conditions often make it more difficult to drive safely. You should have a plan on how you'll change your driving habit to decrease the likelihood that you'll get into an accident, and here are a few tips to get you started because at Cascade Mazda, we want you to have the best information to keep you safe.

One of the most important things is to ensure that you have enough tire tread and that you're tires are properly inflated. Without enough tire tread, it's more likely that you'll hydroplane because your tires can't displace the water quickly enough.

You should also give yourself extra stopping room and distance between cars when you're driving. It's easy to slip or hydroplane right into another vehicle's rear end. So slow it down and give yourself and other drivers plenty of room.
