One of the biggest problems with driving during a rainstorm is the ability to see out of the windshield. Not being able to have a clear line of sight can create a very dangerous situation. A driver will not be able to see other vehicles, flooded areas of the road, lines on the road, or stop lights and signs.
Before hitting the road while it is raining, take the necessary steps to make sure will be able to properly see out of your windshield. Doing so may prevent you from being involved in a car accident.
Three things you can do to maximize your vision out of the windshield are:
- Check windshield wipers. Windshield wipers are one of the most important things you will use to stay safe in the rain and to see out of the windshield. Because they are rarely used, it can be hard to determine whether they are functioning the way they are supposed to. Check to insure they are working and wiping fluids properly.
- Use a water-shedding product. There are great products out, such as Rain-X, which you can apply to your windshield. These products can greatly improve rainy-day visibility for a driver.
- Wear sunglasses. As strange as this may seem, sunglasses actually improve vision during a rainstorm. The sunglasses must be polarized to work. They should also only be worn during the daytime.
