Winter is fast approaching, which means driving in less than ideal conditions. Here at Contra Costa Statewide Bail Bonds, we want you to be safe for the holidays. That is why we have created a short list of driving tips for the rainy and snowy conditions you may experience this holiday season.
When the rain starts to pour, the roads can become treacherous. The wet conditions make driving dangerous. At high speeds cars begin to hydroplane, a condition where the tires lose traction and begin to glide across the water on the road. If this occurs while you are driving, do not panic. Do not slam on the brakes. Instead, let off the gas and slow down. Your tires should gain traction again. The best way to avoid hydroplaning is to drive slower than you normally would when it is raining.
Snow is a more dangerous driving condition than rain. Snow makes the road slippery and requires more caution when driving. For driving in snow, not only slow down your top speed, but everything you do. Speed up and brake at slower speeds to reduce your chances of skidding.
- Rain & Snow:
For both conditions, make sure to keep your headlights on. Your headlights will not only let you see better, but they will allow you to be seen by other drivers. The best advice for driving in bad weather is to not drive in bad weather. If you do not have to go out, then stay in. If you must drive, do so slowly and cautiously and leave plenty of time to get to your destination. After all, it is better to be a little late, than to get in a car crash.
We hope you take these tips to heart and get where you are going safe and sound this winter. Enjoy the holiday get-together with family and stay out of trouble.
