Drive safe during the wet weather
With rain in the forecast for later this week, Caltrans has released a list of tips to help motorists reach their destinations safely:
- Slow down, especially when approaching emergency personnel, tow truck drivers and Caltrans crews working along the side of the road.
- Read electronic message boards for driving conditions, such as lane closures, detours and traffic collisions.
- Keep your vehicle well-maintained. This includes making sure your brakes, windshield wipers and tires are in proper working order. Also, make sure your headlights and tail lights work so you can see and be seen.
- Call 911 to report road hazards and/or traffic collisions.
