Oregon drivers are not strangers to the danger of heavy rains! Our driving school in Gresham makes sure that all of our students are taught the necessary skills to get safely through these nasty driving conditions. Whether it's your first time driving in heavy rains or you've been driving on Oregon's wet roads for years, it's a good idea to review the basics and keep them fresh in your mind. It can help you avoid an accident the next time you are out on the road.
Keep your car rain-ready.
The best defense against the rain is a good offense. That means keeping your car ready for the weather, including making sure your wiper blades are in good working condition and that the tread on your tires isn't too worn. You should also make sure your vehicle is regularly serviced. You should also consider keeping a first-aid kit, a blanket, and some bottled water in your vehicle in case of an accident or if you need to pull out and wait out a storm.
