Stay Alert When Driving in a Rainy Weather
Rain is a fact of life. It waters the plants, provides a natural habitat for small animals, and brings people closer together under the shelter of a roof. However, it is also one of the leading causes of accidents to those who are driving according to a physiotherapist in California.
When you drive your car on a wet and slippery road, you are at risk of losing your grip and sliding across the road surface. As a result, it reduces control for other drivers within the area and increases the chance of an accident happening.
Since you and other motorists are at a safety risk with driving during rainy weather, we recommend that you do the following:
- Be more alert and keep yourself informed about the road conditions.
- Remember to strap on your seatbelt, and consider the speed limits and traffic.
- Listen or watch the weather report if your area is or will be experiencing heavy rainfall.
- Check if your windshield wiper, lights, and breaks are working.
It can be a terrifying experience for you if you get into a road accident, knowing that it can lead to bone fractures or even premature death. If you are a survivor, you may not be able to move around the way you used to because of a spine injury or other physical impairments as a result of the collision.
