Drive Safer in the Rain

At Earthycars, we’re all about making sure that our customers can tackle the rainy weather safely on the roads. When it rains in Williston, there are a few tips to help you confidently navigate your way.

Properly maintained equipment is of the utmost importance. This includes maintaining the right amount of pressure in your tires and having working headlights and taillights. If it’s been a while since you replaced your windshield wiper blades, you should do that, too.

Always slow down when it’s raining outside. Allow more following distance than normal, too, as that will prevent rear-ending someone. Turn off your cruise control so that you focus more on what’s happening. If you hydroplane or someone stops short, don’t panic. Avoid slamming on your brakes so that you can maintain more control on the road. Particularly with hydroplaning, don't fight the steering wheel.
