Winter Driver Safety
Rainy weather during winter months can increase risk of vehicle accidents. Stay safe while driving in the rain by turning on your headlights to improve visibility, no matter the time of day. Slow down to prevent hydroplaning. If you start to skid, avoid hard braking or sharp turns. Stay calm, ease off the accelerator, and gently steer in the direction you want to go. Never drive across flooded roads. Cars can be swept away by less than 2 feet of moving water.
