Buying your vehicle and driving off the lot at Royal Volkswagen of Bloomington is just the beginning of your driving adventure. You will be faced with many trials as you travel the roads, and being prepared will help you get to where you need to safely. One adverse situation that most drivers have to deal with at some point is heavy rain.

Heavy rain presents a number of hazards that requires drivers to take steps to remain safe. The first and most important thing that should be done is to slow down. Water pooling up on roadways can lead to vehicles hydroplaning when speed is at a high rate. Slowing down helps to negate this possible occurrence.

Another thing that is vital to do is to allow more distance between yourself and other vehicles. A second or two of distance provides you and the driver behind you more time to respond and react should something dire happen on the road ahead.
