Avoid Driving Hazards in the Rain

One of the things that you should avoid doing when it's raining is slamming on your brakes. You need to apply smooth and balanced pressure to the brake pedal when the road is slippery so that you can maintain control of your car. If you do begin to slide on the road, you want to turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skid. Kempthorn Mazda can check your brakes to ensure that they are working properly.

Try to scan the road in front of you as much as possible. This can help in avoiding standing water that's on the roadway. Pay attention to the driving patterns of others on the road as you can often tell where standing water is located based on areas they are avoiding.

When you reach an intersection and it's raining, you need to exercise a bit more caution. Drivers might not be able to see your vehicle in heavy downpours, which is why you should always have your lights on when it's raining as well.
