Wet roads and low visibility are responsible for up to 120 traffic accidents daily during the rainy season, this according to the Policia de Tránsito (traffic police) that attend on average 75 collisions daily in the greater metropolitan area (San José).

“Drivers fail to adjust to the conditions, conditions like braking on wet roads as the vehicle does not have the same grip causing rear impacts”, says Transito director, German Marin.

Checking the condition of the vehicle at the start of the rainy season is important.  Experts recommend taking extra time to inspect your vehicle and adjust your driving to the weather conditions.

The thread life of the tires, the condition of the wiper blades and windshield washer levels are very important all the time, more so during the rainy season, for slick tires don’t brake well and worn out wiper blades blur the windshield instead of giving you clear vision.

Adjusting speed is also very important during the rainy season.

A mixture of grime and water means slick roads and require increased stopping distance. A combination of speed and hard breaking lead to losing control of the vehicle.

Although most of the daily accidents are minor, keeping your car in good condition and driving to the conditions will avoid accidents.
