Top 5 Tips for Driving in Rain

April showers are here, check out these quick tips on how to get to your destination safely.

1) Allow for more travel time - You should drive at a slower pace when roads are wet.

2) Brake earlier - and with less force.  This gives the drivers behind you enough time to slow down.

3) Don't use cruise control - This may cause you to accelerate if you're hydroplaning.

4)  Don't cross running water - The force of the water can be greater than the weight of your vehicle.

5) Keep your headlights on  - but don't use your high beams, those will obscure your view.
