Staying Safe in Wet Weather

When driving in rainy weather, it is a good idea to go slow and leave extra distance between other cars on the road. This will make it easier to stop the car if necessary, and it may also reduce the odds of having to brake suddenly. If a car goes into a skid, do not hit the brakes.

Instead, you should drive the car in the direction that you want it to go. As a general rule, braking too hard can leave the vehicle vulnerable to hydroplaning. This happens when the tire glides over the water as opposed to making contact with the road itself.

If you need to buy new tires or otherwise have your car inspected prior to driving in wet weather, bring your car to our service center at Crown Ford in Redding, CA. Doing so can make it easier to get the service that you need in a timely manner.
