Lamborghini Denver in Highlands Ranch, CO, is here to share with you some tips for making rainy-day driving a safer process overall in the Front Range.

Six Excellent Rainy-Day Weather Driving Tips

Drive Slower Than Usual –

Rain introduces a slippery coating over any roadway you drive on in Colorado. As such, the faster you go, the more likely you could accidentally slide out. If you know you’re going to have to contend with slippery roads, make sure you slow down compared to your usual driving patterns. This will give you enough time to correct yourself and make needed turns.

Avoid Sudden Acceleration & Movement –

While not as inconsistent as snow, avoid having to make sharp turns or sudden merges on the road while it’s raining. Similarly, don’t hit the gas pedal hard when accelerating. Gradually speed up to prevent wheel spin and avoid spinning out when the roads get especially slippery with rain.

Make Sure Your Windshield Wipers are Prepared to Handle the Rain –

If you haven’t replaced the windshield wipers on your vehicle in a while, you’ll find it more difficult to properly clear your vision of rain when it really starts to fall. Let our Service Center technicians provide you with a set of wipers that work best with your Lamborghini so that you can have confidence you’ll be able to see in even the most incredible downpours.

Know Your Route & Give Yourself Extra Time –

Knowing where you’re going and how you’re going to get there is a great way to help family, friends, and emergency personnel get to you if you find yourself stranded during a rainstorm. Whether it is a route you’ve taken many times, or it’s a new destination, make sure you memorize important roads or cities you’ll be in. Additionally, leave earlier than you normally would so that you can give yourself extra time to reach your destination safely.

Make Sure Your Tires are Capable of Providing Reliable Grip –

When your tires have low tread levels, they become less capable of displacing water on the road making it harder to get appropriate grip. If you’re running on a set of older tires, we advise you to stop into Lamborghini Denver today and let one of our technicians check your tread and provide information on a new set of tires that are ready to handle these more demanding conditions,if needed.

Bring a Small Emergency Kit Along Just in Case –

Even when you do everything right, sometimes the weather just becomes too difficult to safely traverse and you may need to pull over and wait out the event. If so, we recommend carrying an emergency kit with you that contains the necessary items to hold you over for a few hours. These include non-perishable snacks and bottled water, smartphone charging cables, and a flashlight so that you can see if it gets dark outside.
