Rain doesn’t happen very often in Arizona, but it is important to always be prepared for wet weather conditions.  

 

  • Wear your seatbelt!
  • Wet Weather GraphicDon’t fool yourself with your wet weather skills.
  • Make sure your tires have plenty of tread. If you are not sure, take your car to a tire shop.
  • Double your following and stopping distance.
  • Drive below the speed limit – slow down and be patient.
  • If you feel your vehicle hydroplaning through feedback from your steering wheel, that means you are traveling too fast.
  • Use headlights and tail lights.
  • The roadway will be slippery; during rainfall the oils from the road rise to the surface.
  • Have wet weather gear in your car.
  • DO NOT drive around road closed signs. If you do and require rescue, you can be cited for Arizona’s “Stupid Motorist Law”. The driver is responsible for the cost of resuce.
