driver safety signThe month of May often brings rain, so now is a good time to remind your drivers of safe driving practices for slippery roads. Here are some tips for safe driving:

When you drive on wet gravel or dirt roads you should:

1. Drive more cautiously with slower speeds and stay farther behind the vehicle ahead of you.

2. Reduce your speed as you approach curves and intersections.

3. Avoid abrupt stops.

4. Avoid quick turns.

5. Shift into a lower gear before going down a steep hill.

6. If your brakes get wet, dry them by pressing the gas and brake pedals at the same time so that the vehicle drives against the pressure of the brakes.

7. Avoid especially slippery areas, such as wet leaves, oil and deep puddles.
