Driving in the rain can be very dangerous. This is especially true in Tampa as we can get several inches of rain in just a few hours during our summer rainy season.
The most important tip for driving in the rain is to slow down. It takes more time to stop and with windshield wipers going it also takes longer to recognize a danger.
Some tips for driving in the rain:
If you find yourself hydroplaning follow these simple rules: a) do not brake suddenly b) easier foot off the gas c) turned your steering wheel in the direction of the skid, as you recover control gently straighten the wheels d) If you must break use a gentle pumping action, if your vehicle has antilock brakes you may break normally because the computer will supply the breaking action.
