Helpful Tips for Driving in Heavy Rain
It is spring in Colorado again and with the good weather also comes an increase in rain. According to the CDC, more than half of flood-related drownings are due to people driving into floods. If possible, stay off the roads during heavy rains.
If you must drive, it doesn’t take much water to cause you to use control. Drive slowly through standing water, turn on your headlights and windshield wipers, if you don’t know how deep water is- don’t drive through it and always make sure your cell phone is charged before leaving the house.
Above all else, use common sense and don’t take a risk driving in the rain if you don’t have to!
