If you plan on hitting the road in the next couple of days, plan on driving in wet conditions. Here are some basic tips. Before you leave, check your wipers (they`re supposed to be changed at least once a year). Also, check tires to make sure the treads are okay. Make sure your headlights are working well, too. Once you`re in the car and on the road, make sure you keep a safe distance from the car in front of you. Also try to head into a middle lane-- chances are there`s less water there. Most important, stay patient. After all, this is the time for giving thanks, not grief.
