Driving in Bad Weather

When driving in bad or adverse weather conditions, it is important to take precautions to ensure your safety especially if you are taking a longer journey.

  • Make sure you tune to the radio for weather conditions reports.
  • If you hear of inclement weather such as tornados, hail, or other severe conditions, you should alter your travel plans if possible.
  • If you suddenly find yourself in the middle of extreme weather, slow your speed and turn on your lights even if it is daytime. Turning on your lights will let other drivers see you in case visibility is reduced.
  • If the weather conditions are too severe or dangerous, don't attempt to drive your way out of it. Instead, immediately seek shelter.
