Wet Driving

There’s a trick to driving in wet conditions. You ready? Here it is. SLOW DOWN. Seriously, if more drivers would heed this advice in the rain, accidents would dramatically decrease. Wet weather doesn’t get the same attention as snow and ice, but it should. Wet roads present similar dangers—like less grip and longer stopping distance.

To watch wet weather driving techniques, watch the video below, which was shot on a professional wet track with a professional driver.

Wet Driving Tips

  • Make sure your tires offer the proper amount of tread (click here to learn the Penny Test).
  • Own tires that offer maximum grip in wet weather, like the BFGoodrich® g-Force Super Sport A/S®.
  • Drive with two hands. Always.
  • Slow down before turning, and maintain a consistent speed throughout the turn.
  • While turning, don’t make any sudden steering wheel movements.
  • Only brake in a straight line before the turn, and do so gradually. Do not brake during the turn.
  • Increase your following distance from other cars significantly.
  • If hydroplaning, do not accelerate or brake suddenly. Keep your foot lightly on the gas and steer the car forwards until your tires regain traction.
