If you live in BC you know the rains are coming. Rain helps to clear the air and keeps our province green, but it can make driving difficult if you’re not prepared. This is the time to check your wipers and replace them if necessary. A good time to top up your windshield washer fluid too.

All-season tires work well on both dry and wet roads and are a good investment to tackle those sudden down pours. Remember, water pools in the outside lanes, so stay in the middle lanes where possible. It is also easier to drive in the tracks of the vehicle in front of you than to drive through large puddles. Keep a following distance of at least five seconds and break and turn slowly.

If you’re prepared, driving in the rain can be a lot more stress free.
