How to Drive When it is Raining

We want you to be prepared for summer rain and wet road conditions, which is why we suggest that you check your vehicle's tire pressure, headlights, taillights, turn signals, and windshield wipers once a month. In addition, you can also practice the following driving habits to increase safety when it rains.

At the first sign of rain or water that is standing on the roads, you should be sure that your cruise control is off until you reach dry terrain. Cruise control prevents you from braking by lifting off the accelerator, which will mean less traction and a higher chance of hydroplaning. Also, be sure to slow down when it is raining. Your vehicle's tires work hard to stay in contact with the road, and hydroplaning can happen at only 35 mph with newer tires.

The next time your vehicle needs to be serviced, we invite you to contact our service center at Atlanta Classic Cars.
