Although residents of West Palm Beach enjoy a much milder winter than in
most other states, drivers in Florida should still be prepared for the
winter rainy season. Properly preparing your car for rain will help you
prevent accidents and injuries, and it can even save your life.
Tips for Maintaining Your Car for the Rain
•Before the rainy season even begins, swap out your old wiper blades
with fresh new ones. They are inexpensive, and can be changed in just
a few minutes.
•Make sure your tires have proper tread. The classic penny trick works
well – put a penny into a few tread grooves across the tire, and
check to see if Lincoln’s head is partially covered. If so, you
have suitable tread remaining
•Check your tire pressure. Underinflated tires can make you lose traction
when the streets are wet.
•Always carry an emergency kit in your car, and keep your cell phone
on you whenever you’re driving.
