Driving in the Rain
Even if you have inspected your vehicle to prepare for the rainy season, drivers must adjust their normal driving habits to accommodate for the slippery roads. The following is a list of what drivers can do to decrease the risk of being involved in a traffic collision:

• Adjust your speed during wet weather. Rain lowers the amount of traction between tires and the road.
• Give yourself extra time to get to your destination.
• Check the tire pressure and the tire tread.
• Leave extra space between your vehicle and the car in front of you. Wet brakes will prevent your vehicle from stopping at the rate it normally stops when the brakes are dry.
• If you feel the car begin to skid, continue to look and steer in the direction you want the car to go. Don’t panic, and avoid slamming on the brakes to maintain control.
• Drive with your headlights on. As of 2005, it is California law to drive with your headlights on, day or night, when it is raining.
