One in three Australian drivers fear driving in the rain because wet weather driving can be very dangerous. Rain can reduce visibility and road surface friction which results in an increased crash frequency and injury severity. Drivers can reduce the risk of a crash by reducing speeds, maintaining safe distance, and driving with more care and caution.
Safety can start before you drive with vehicle maintenance. You should prepare and frequently maintain your vehicle to make sure you will always be as safe as possible when driving in wet conditions.
