A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect from Tuesday Afternoon in Central Arizona! To ensure your safety and the safety of others it is important to make sure your vehicle is ready before the rain hits. Here are a few areas of your vehicle you may want to check:
Check Your Tires- Your tires play a vital role in maintaining traction with the road. This is especially important in wet conditions. Additionally, when the temperatures drops dramatically it affects your tire pressure. It is important if your tire pressure light is on or you are concerned about your tire pressure to get them checked as soon as possible.
Check Your Brakes- Coming to a complete stop in wet conditions can take longer than when it's dry. You want to make sure your brakes are performing as good as they can.
Check Your Wipers- With such little rainfall so far this year in Arizona it is likely you have not tested them in a while. Even if they have not been used, the Arizona Sun and Heat causes your wipers to crack and breakdown. Before the rain hits make sure you have properly working Windshield Wipers.
Check Your Headlights - To ensure you will have optimal visibility. In heavy rain your headlights may be the only way other drivers will be able to see you are on the road. Make sure they are working and bright enough. Also, don't forget if the rain gets to heavy pull to the side of the road and wait for better conditions.
Don't let the rain catch you offguard. Get your vehicle checked today!
