Rain makes it difficult to see out the window and increases your risk of being injured in a car accident in Virginia Beach. In addition, another car’s lights can make it worse.
Three Ways to Keep Safe in the Rain
Fortunately, there are several ways you can reduce your risk, including the following three:
- Stay put. If at possible, stay off the roads during bad weather. Stay at home or find a safe place where you can wait out the storm. This is the best way to avoid an accident.
- Keep your eyes on the road. Many accidents occur when a motorist takes their eyes off the road. It is imperative that you are able to recognize any sudden road dangers that may appear. This includes staying off your cell phone.
- Keep calm. It is important to keep calm at all times. The last thing you want is to make a sudden maneuver resulting from nervousness. You could find yourself quickly losing control of your vehicle.
