Tips For Driving Safely in the Rain

As we begin to move slowly but surely into the more rainy months of the year it is important to check different parts of your vehicle to ensure that you are driving as safely as possible. We here at Griffin Autos will explore in our blog below a few things that you ought to check before driving in wet weather conditions.

Windscreen wipers

Your wiper blades, both those located at the front and back of your vehicle must be in good condition. This is important as windscreen wipers not in serviceable condition will not clear away rain and moisture from your windscreen effectively which will lower your visibility. If this is the case with your windscreen wipers it is important to change them straight away as it is imperative that you are aware of any possible hazards.


In all weather conditions tyres must be in good condition for good traction on the road but this is especially true during the wetter months.

Air Conditioning and Heating

It is best practice to know how to operate both your air conditioning and your heating systems quickly in order to rapidly defog the interior of your vehicle. This will help you avoid any limitations to your visibility.


The Highway Code mandates that motorists turn on their dipped-beam headlights as soon as it begins to rain, day or night.
