Auto Insurance & Safe Rain Driving Tips for El Nino

Driving Safely in the Rain & Auto Insurance Redlands CA

Your auto insurance in Redlands, CA and these tips can help keep you safe on the rain slicked roads.

The rain is a welcome sight in the current California drought conditions. However, with a monster El Nino predicted to hit the state this month, you may quickly get tired of the wet weather. Before you head out onto the road during the next downpour, consider if you have the right Redlands, CA auto insurance and know-how to keep you safe.

Use these tips to help you continue driving safely in the rain this season.

Slow Down

Posted speed limits are only meant for perfect weather and road conditions. When the roads are wet, slow down. Driving slower gives you the time you need to react to any dangerous situations that you may encounter.

Leave Space

Increase your following distance to at least five seconds. How? Pick a spot on the side of the road, such as a street sign. Once the car ahead of you passes it, start counting slowly. You should hit the same mark when you reach the number 5.

Avoid Cruise Control

Cruise control can be great on long stretches of road. It can also be dangerous to use in the rain since you don’t have as much control over your car. Keep both hands on the wheel so that you can stay in control of your vehicle.


If you hit a puddle of water on the road, you may feel your car start to hydroplane. While your first reaction may be to slam on your brakes, that is the opposite of what you should do. Instead, let your foot off the gas and continue steering and looking in the direction you want to go. Once you feel your tires regain traction, you can gradually start to brake.
