Southern Californians don't often see a lot of rain. So when they do, it can be a bit disorienting. To make sure you're ready, we've got tips on how to prepare your car for wet weather:
- Check your windshield wipers. If your wipers are streaking or skipping, it's time for a new set.
- Spray your windshield with Rain-X. It's supposed to improve visibility when driving in the rain.
- Check your brakes and tires. Bald or worn tires will slip more easily in wet weather. The penny (or quarter) trick could work for you, or it never hurts to take your car to a pro. Also, make sure your tires are inflated to recommended pressure.
