Winter in Perth, and more generally Australia, is the season when it rains the most, which means the way you drive and the way you look at your car should differ from any other season. Rain and wet roads affect your visibility, reaction time and the ability of your car to slow down. Based on this, you should double the braking distance you usually leave from 2 seconds to 4 seconds and avoid sudden braking to avoid the risk of skidding. It’s also a good time to check your tyres’ thread are at least 15mm deep and maintain their pressure for extra road grip.
