Driving in and around Wintersville requires alertness. This is especially true during periods of low visibility such as fog or rain. Driving in the rain requires extra care and know-how. Here at State Park Motors Inc, we recommend these tips to help you handle rainy conditions.

First and foremost, you should slow down when it starts to rain. Driving more slowly allows you better reaction time. In addition, you'll want to be as alert and awareness as possible. Eliminate distractions like loud music or talking so that you can pay better attention to the road in front of you.

Hydroplaning is a dangerous occurrence on wet road. This can happen when your vehicle's tires lose traction with the road. In the event of hydroplaning, it's best to take your foot off of the accelerator to slow down gradually. If you find your car sliding, turn the steering wheel slightly in the direction of the skid.
