If you must drive in the rain, reduce your speed and use extreme caution. Allow plenty of space between you and other cars on the road. Ensure your tires are inflated correctly and have enough treads for traction on wet surfaces.

Wear a seat belt, even if you are driving slowly. It will help protect you when a front-end collision occurs. Leave your headlights on, but use them sluggishly. When driving in wet conditions at night, the lights that illuminate the road may reflect off raindrops and create glare for other drivers.

If you have a passenger in the car, make sure they buckle up too. The driver is responsible for most of an accident's injuries and fatalities. Don't brake harshly. If your brakes are wet, they will not work as well and you may skid.

If your car starts to skid, shift into a lower gear rather than hitting the brakes. This will slow down the vehicle and give you more control over how it slides.
