Drive Safe in the Rain this Season

Sometimes we feel a little left out from the rest of the country as everyone celebrates the season of fall. We watch our fellow American's indulge in pumpkin spice lattes and hot cider. We envy the New Englander's and vacationers in Colorado as they take in the beautiful foliage. Well, all too soon these same people will complain of negative temperatures as they're buried under snow, and we'll keep barbequing and driving with the windows down.

That said, at your New Boston Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep located at 510 Addison Street in New Boston, TX, we think it is still necessary to remind our drivers of a few safety precautions to take as the seasons change and the rain feels colder.

Driving in rain can be just as dangerous as driving over ice. We want to remind drivers to drive more slowly in wet conditions, maintaining mild pressure on the brake pedal especially on curves. If you find yourself in a skid, remember to steer in the direction of the skid, not opposite as we would expect. Avoid hydroplaning by keeping your tires inflated correctly. Our Car Service & Repairs center can help you with any questions or maintenance. Call us at (888) 290-6869, or schedule an appointment Monday-Friday. Take 34 seconds and watch this helpful video on the top 10 tips for driving in the rain, and stay safe out there this fall!
