WSDOT Logo Be ready for driving on dark, wet roads Fall is here, and with it comes shorter days and more rainy weather. That means reduced visibility and wet roadways, which requires even more attention when you’re behind the wheel. Here are a few hints to keep your travels safe: Allow plenty of stopping distance, especially on wet roads. Check your windshield wipers to be sure they function properly, and fill your wiper fluid container. Check your tires to be sure the tread is good and they’re properly inflated. Check all your lights – headlights, taillights, running lights, turn signals. Have an emergency kit in your car.
