The bright Texas sun can be replaced by a torrential downpour in a matter of moments. These driving tips will keep you safe on the road… Rain or shine!
Easy on the Brakes
Avoid pumping the brakes during a rainstorm, as this could cause them to lock and result in a skid. Instead, apply light, even pressure – and, whenever possible, avoid those sudden stops!
Keep Hydroplaning At Bay
Hydroplaning isn’t just scary…It’s dangerous. A good way to minimize the risk of hydroplaning is by keeping your tires properly inflated at all times. Worn tires can also increase the risk. For tire replacement, Louetta Automotive is proud to provide the only best service. If you do hydroplane, resist the urge to put on the brakes. Instead, take your foot off the gas slowly to regain control.
Know the Roads
Puddles ahead? When possible, avoid them. Stay away from routes that notoriously flood during rainstorms, and try to drive in the wheel paths made by other cars on the road.
Take Your Time
Reign in your inner speed demon during a rainstorm. One of the most effective ways to prevent an accident is to drive slowly, defensively, and carefully.
