Driving in heavy rains can quickly reduce your visibility and create slippery and hazardous road conditions.So you may remember to drive safely. The tips are as following:

Step1: Check headlights, taillights, brake lights and turn signals. Make sure the windshield wiper motor is functioning and that both wiper blades are not worn down or split.
Confirm that your windshields and windows are clean, both inside and out, before driving. Clear your interior windows regularly of smoke residue if you're a smoker.


Step 2: Check the situation behind your car through your rear view mirror.


Step 3: Turn on the headlights along with your wipers whenever it starts raining.


Step 4: Keep a greater-than-normal distance from the car ahead of you to compensate for poor braking conditions.


Step 5: Remember to avoid flooded roads. Never drive through standing or flowing water in a road way unless you have no choice or you are able to follow someone else to make judgement of the depth of the water. It can cause the engine to stall if flooding the engine of your car and deep water can actually float your car and take it off the roadway.


Step 6: Try your best to pull over when it's raining heavily, you can't see the edge of the road or other vehicles. So you can stop at some rest areas like roadside malls, restaurants and so on.


Step 7:
You must be aware that the maximum speed, which you can drive is directly related to your tires. Be sure to know what their condition is in. Do not ignor the importance of your car rear view system, Radial tires have better traction than the old bias ply polyester tires, but even they lose their ability to grip wet pavement and channel water out as the tread wears out.
