Wet Weather Driving Tip

Hi, Ryan Perry here with Acur-it Automotive, your Rohnert Park auto repair center.

Did you know that with as little as an inch and a half of water on the roadway, your tires have to displace as much as 35 gallons of water per second. To ensure the safety of you, your family and those around you, it's imperative in wet weather driving to drive slower, allowing your tires to displace water and give yourself a little bit of cushion room, to ensure that you have enough breaking room to stop as wet weather driving will extend your break distance, especially on the freeway when you're traveling at a higher rate of speed.
