DRIVING STANDARDS AGENCY

THE OFFICIAL HIGHWAY CODE

Driving in wet weather

The Highway Code applies to England, Scotland and Wales. It's essential reading for everyone. Here's a reminder about driving in wet weather.


Rule 227


In wet weather, stopping distances (PDF, 125KB) will be at least double those required for stopping on dry roads. This is because your tyres have less grip on the road. In wet weather


you should keep well back from the vehicle in front. This will increase your ability to see and plan ahead

if the steering becomes unresponsive, it probably means that water is preventing the tyres from gripping the road. Ease off the accelerator and slow down gradually

the rain and spray from vehicles may make it difficult to see and be seen

be aware of the dangers of spilt diesel that will make the surface very slippery

take extra care around pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and horse riders
