Q:

Tips for driving in the rain

A:

  • Turn your headlights on – the Highway Code says you must use them when visibility is seriously reduced (less than 100m).
  • Use fog lights if you like, but switch them off when visibility improves.
  • Leave twice as much space between you and the car in front – it takes longer to stop in the wet.
  • If your steering feels light due to aquaplaning, ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually.
  • If you break down don't prop the bonnet open while you wait. Rain-soaked electrics can make it harder to start the engine.
