How to Safely Drive Your Car in the Rain

The following safety guide brought to you by BMW of Rochester Hills will help you to drive better in the rain.

Make sure to turn on the headlights as soon as you put on the windshield wipers. This is now a law in many states, designed to allow other drivers to see your vehicle as visibility drops.

Add two more seconds to the distance between cars by simply slowing down. This allows everyone more reaction time on the roads. Oil patches on the road are most slippery as the rain starts, so it is a good practice to slow down to avoid losing control on those slippery patches.

Be sure to turn off the cruise control before you lose control of the vehicle as the tires keep speeding up.
