Road Safety Reminder for the Week

ROAD CONDITIONS – HEAVY RAIN
During heavier rains, it’s advisable to turn on your headlights for increased visibility. Scan ahead for large puddles and slow down when you go through the water. Most vehicles lack protection on the underside and large quantities of water splashed up in the undercarriage can soak wiring, brake linings and other essential parts. Failure to negotiate large puddles with caution can result in a stall or in a brake failure or malfunction. Keep your car under control and your brakes in excellent condition. Always allow a safe distance between your car and any other car or person, so that you make a smooth stop. Jerky stops often cause dangerous skidding.

In the event you do find yourself skidding, DON’T SLAM on your brakes. Instead, take your foot off the accelerator and gently turn your wheels in the direction of the skid. Braking or oversteering to correct may end up in another skid and locked brakes. Once the car straightens up, gently brake to a stop.
