The lowdown on car accident claims
If you have to drive in heavy rain then you need to be extra careful to avoid being involved in accidents, and also ensure that you don’t cause accidents for other drivers. If you do, then Accident Advice Helpline can tell you about claiming after a car crash in Viewpark.
It is tricky to drive in heavy rain, as there is less visibility and the roads can also be very slippery, making it difficult for you to steer and know where you are going.
In the dark, it’s worse, so you should be doubly careful. Here are tips for driving in heavy rain, and always remember the safest thing you can do is to avoid driving at all when the weather is bad.
- Put on your headlights. If you are dealing with any situation where you have reduced visibility, such as rain, fog or snow, you should put your headlights on. Even if you think that you can see just fine in this weather, you have to understand that other people may not be able to see you as well as they should be able to
- Slow down. In heavy rain, you need to be sure that you are being as slow and safe as possible, because the time in which you are able to stop your car may be longer when the roads are slippery and wet. This also counts for when the roads are icy, or there is fog, as both of these things will make the road slippery as well
- Indicate. You should never forget to indicate anyway, as this can be extremely dangerous, but during bad weather you absolutely need to remember to indicate, and indicate sooner rather than later, so that other cars on the road can make adjustments to suit what you are trying to do
- Focus on everything around you. Bear in mind that it may take you a little longer to stop your vehicle, so you will need to be able to react to potential dangers much more quickly. For this reason, you need to be able to focus on the road
