Vehicle – Safety
Driving in the rain can be a slippery situation – slick road conditions, poor visibility and possible hydroplaning or skidding. More than 1 million weather-related crashes occur each year – most on wet pavement and nearly half while raining.
Smart drivers know techniques for driving in the rain, avoiding hydroplaning and using the vehicle’s safety features. Here are some tips for driving in wet conditions that you can save for a rainy day.
As the weather warms, more and more RVs can be seen rolling along the highways. Driving next to such large vehicles can be intimidating, so treat RVs the same as you would a semi-truck (some RVs are nearly as large, and have similar mirror set-ups and handling abilities). When driving near an RV, keep these five tips in mind, and practice the same precautions when you’re on the road with any large vehicle.
