Wet weather safety tips

Wet weather safety tips

MAC has the following tips for safer road use during wet weather:

  1.  Drive to the conditions, and lower your speed in cases where visibility is poor or roads are slippery;
  2. Keep a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front – count at least three seconds;
  3. Check your tyres – if they have less tread on them, the tyres cannot displace enough water, which may make the vehicle aquaplane;
  4. Check for wear and tear on wiper blades and replace them as soon as they start to smear rather than clean windows;
  5. Check your car’s lights and indicators to make sure all are working properly and always turn on headlights in wet or foggy conditions;
  6. Cyclists should use their lights during the day as well as at night, and wearing florescent and reflective clothing will make it easy for drivers to see you;
  7. Pedestrians should always cross at the lights and be aware that drivers could have difficulty seeing them

When to use your fog lights

When to use your fog lights

Fog lights are designed to be used in fog or other hazardous weather conditions causing reduced visibility.

When fog lights are used in clear weather conditions the glare from these powerful lights can make driving difficult for approaching traffic.

Did you know that it is an offence to use fog lights when not driving in fog or other hazardous weather conditions and can incur a penalty of $218?
