How to drive in a downpour

How to drive in a downpour

With severe storms having recently hit us, and set to continue, it’s time to be extra careful on the roads. AutoTrader and advanced driving instructor for Jaguar, Devon Scott, offer advice on driving in a downpour.

Torrential rain

  • Slow down! A brand-new tyre can only displace a maximum of 10mm of water at a maximum speed of 80km/h. Any faster speed or deeper water will result in aquaplaning.
  • Increase your following distance. Even with ABS or dynamic stability control brakes, extreme weather can double the distance required to stop your vehicle.
  • Keep both hands on the wheel at all times. Deep puddles could pull your vehicle in an unintended direction.
  • Increase visibility by using headlights, and both front and rear high-intensity fog lights.
  • Avoid crossing rivers. Fast-flowing water just 30cm deep can push a vehicle off the road and down the river. If this happens, a headrest can be pulled out and used to break a window.
