With all the beauty spring brings, it also presents a unique set of driving challenges.
Here are some common-sense tips to keep in mind as you hit the highway during this sometimes slick and soggy time of year:
- When rain or mist begins, slow down. It is harder to stop in wet or slick roadways.
- Turn on your fan and defroster to keep the inside of your windshield clear of moisture.
- Avoid driving through big puddles; splashing water could affect your brakes and impair the vision of other motorists.
- Check your windshield wipers for wear. (The winter weather can take its toll on your wiper blades.)
