Tips to Avoid Wet Weather Crashes in Virginia
Wet conditions have returned again to Hampton Roads and the rest of Virginia. It's going to be a slick week on the highways punctuated by sudden downpours and flash flooding. Typically, more wrecks occur in these conditions. You should slow down when visibility is bad because you may not see a vehicle in front of you or another obstacle. There's also the danger of hydroplaning.
The torrential rain and storms that we see in Virginia during weeks like this one can cause flash flooding in cities like Norfolk, Hampton and Portsmouth. Don't drive into flooded streets. See this infographic for more wet weather driving tips.
