It’s important to be constantly prepared for the types of weather that are most likely to occur where you live. The team at Beyer Volvo Cars of Dulles in Dulles, VA is here to help you keep your vehicle in top condition and offers these tips to make your next trip in the rain safer.

You shouldn't wait until you’re already on the road to start thinking about safety. Tire pressure, tire tread, windshield wiper blades, and exterior lighting should be monitored regularly and double-checked before an impending bout of heavy rain or severe weather.

Once your rainy-day trip is underway, it’s a good idea to keep more space than usual between your vehicle and other vehicles on the road. Don’t hesitate to go slower than the posted speed limit if you notice ponding on the road, and avoid slamming on the brakes if you feel your vehicle start to skid.
