In our experience, the best solution to driving in extreme weather or traffic is planning ahead and most importantly – staying calm.
At Dealer Xpress we practice preparation by professionally installing Aquapel to our windshields. This process allows us to see clearly driving in the rain. The treatment is inexpensive and for Washington weather, a must to relieve traffic stress.
In addition to treating the windshield to improve visibility here are some useful tips to help you battle Washington’s rain:
- Turn on your headlights
- Turn on your defroster, even if you don’t need it right the defroster will help prevent sudden fogging due to high moisture in the air
- Increase the space between the car in front of you
- if hydroplaning, keep the steering wheel straight and take your foot off the gas pedal
