These tips are universal so you may already know them. If so, that’s fine, but we want to refresh your memory so you’ll be safe.
It’s the annual rainy season, time to review your driving skills for hauling in hard rain. Brushing up can never hurt. Before departing on a trip, start by reviewing your route and checking for weather alerts which may require you to change your route. Stow snacks and drinks near your seat for quick and easy access while driving.
Always take along spare windshield wipers. Hard rain wears out wipers when you’re trying to keep visibility. You can change a wiper in bad weather in the interest of health and safety for yourself and others.
Remove distractions like electronic devices which may affect your concentration. Put your phone on “Do Not Disturb” and put it and any other devices away from your seat. Devices are only to be used when you are not driving.
