Being prepared to drive in the rain

It can be tough to drive in the rain, so we went to a driving school in the Springs to learn what to do if you lose control on wet roads.

The first rule is to slow down, it takes longer to stop or adjust in wet weather. If you find yourself hydroplaning, the experts at Master Drive say it's best to let off the gas gradually, look where you want to go and steer in that direction. If your car gets into an out of control skid, to recover, you also need to look in the direction you want to go and steer there. Don't brake, it will cause the tires to stop rolling, and if they aren't rolling you won't recover from a skid.

We'll have more on how to drive in the rain coming up tonight on News First 5 at 5 p.m.
