Safety tips for driving in rainy weather

Now that winter is in full force drivers must be cautious when traveling during inclement weather. Medwin Insurance Agency is providing these driving tips to help you safely travel during rainy weather.

Remember to check your tires periodically. It is important to make sure your tires are properly inflated and that the tires have proper tread depth.

If you start to skid while pavement is wet do not slam on your brakes. Instead apply steady firm pressure while steering in the direction of the skid.

Another important tip is to remember that you should not use cruise control during wet weather. Using cruise control can cause you to hydroplane. If you start to hydroplane, do not brake suddenly instead try to steer as straight as possible until your car straightens out.

Remember these driving tips next time you are traveling in the rain.  For more information about auto insurance in the Greater Los Angeles area, please contact Medwin Insurance Agency, Inc.
