Rain is one of the biggest risk factors for car accidents. It decreases your visibility and your tires’ grip on the road. We recently asked forensic scientist and “Tyre Guy” T.J. Tennent about how to stay safe while driving in rainy conditions.

Check out the video to learn from the expert himself.

T.J.’s Tips for Driving in the Rain

T.J. recommends being proactive before driving in the rain. That means checking your tire pressure and tread, replacing your wiper blades every 6-12 months (earlier if they stop working), and turning on your headlights.

Slow down when it’s raining and put extra space between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. In heavy downpours that limit your visibility, pull over into a parking lot until the rain subsides.

Finally, be prepared for hydroplaning, which can occur even at relatively low speeds. If you feel a sudden loss of traction, don’t slam on your brakes. Instead, gradually slow down until you regain control of your vehicle.

We’re Here After a Rainy-Day Accident

When other drivers don’t slow down and exercise caution in rainy conditions, they put themselves and others at risk. Ponce Law is here to help when negligent drivers fail to adjust to the weather.

Contact our Nashville auto accident lawyers if you or someone you love was injured by a careless driver.

    Brian and Cheyenne made my first experience with an attorney's office a breeze. I'm thrilled with the outcome of my case—the settlement exceeded my expectations. A friend's mother recommended Ponce Law, and I'm so glad she did. The support I received was crucial, especially during the 2-3 weeks I was out of work. Thanks, Ponce Law, for delivering results beyond what I anticipated.

    I was driving down I-40 when I got hit by another car. I called Michael Ponce because I wanted an attorney right here in Nashville. As soon as I called, I knew I made the right decision, and Ponce Law got me the money I needed to get back on my feet. I highly recommend Ponce Law!

    After my car accident, I wasn’t sure if I needed an attorney. I called Ponce Law for a free consultation. I’m so glad I made the call. I wanted a local attorney, and from the first call, to when my case was settled, I felt heard, valued, and taken care of.

    I was on I-40 coming into Nashville and a car ran into the back of me. The accident was serious, and I needed surgery. I did ask an attorney friend of mine whom I should call, and he said call Ponce Law. The folks at Ponce Law were outstanding and got us a large settlement.
