  • Constantly check the vehicle’s lights, to be visible to other road actors.
  • Check the condition and pressure of the tires, because with the rain they can lose their grip on the road.
  • Avoid roads where there are oil stains, taking into account that they could cause vehicles such as motorcycles to slide, causing an accident on the road.
  • Check the condition of the brakes, as rain can excessively wet the discs and form a liquid layer between them and the pad.
  • Avoid sudden movements or maneuvers, as the grip with wet asphalt is less.
  • Avoid crossing flooded areas, as obstacles may be present below them.
