How to increase your visibility in the rain – and personal injury lawyers in Overstand
When driving in the rain, it is not the slippery roads or the winds which offer the most danger, but the simple fact that you will not be able to see the road as well, or have anyone on the road see you as clearly.
Visibility is hugely important when driving in the rain, as with the rain coming down and the dimness of the light, cars may not see each other before it is too late, and this can cause a crash. Here are some tips for increasing your visibility when you are driving in the rain.
- Try rain repellent. This is a simple spray which you can apply to your windshield and will help the rain to bounce off more easily, and stop it forming a sheet across your windshield, which would badly damage your visibility.
- Turn your headlights on. Whether it is day or night, if it is raining you should have your headlights on. This will help you to see better in front of you, so you spot potential hazards before they occur, but will also make you more visible so that other cars can see you.
- Check your windscreen wipers. Windscreen wipers should be replaced once a year to make sure that they always work as effectively as you need them to. You might also want to look into more flexible wipers which should gather the rain and move it out of your field of vision far more effectively.
- Slow down. Even if you have improved your visibility some, you should still be driving more cautiously to stop yourself getting into danger. Slow down and try to keep a little more distance between yourself and other vehicles.
