How to Drive Safely in the Rain

As summer is upon us, so is more rain, which means there is an increased risk for auto accidents. At Bluebonnet Motors, we want to make certain that you are fully prepared for wet terrain. Aside from checking your windshield wipers, tire pressure, and lights, you can also follow these tips for driving in the rain.

During rainy weather, slowing down is the best way to prevent hydroplaning. Newer tires can hydroplane at 35 mph. Your tires will have to move a gallon of water per second when there is only 1/12 inch of water on the road. Cruise control should also be left off during the rain. Although cruise control works effectively on dry terrain, it could result in losing control of the vehicle when used during the rain.

If you need your vehicle serviced, be sure to visit our service center. We have trained technicians ready to provide you with assistance.
