Soggy spring weather is upon us! While the return of Oregon rain is refreshing it’s also dangerous; Suddenly moist roads are harder to stop on and worn tires only exacerbate the problem. So please, take a look at the graphic above, check your tire tread, and reconsider the distance it takes you to stop on wet pavement verses dry. Maybe you’ll decide to invest in a new set of tires. At the very least, maybe you’ll give yourself extra time to stop. And enjoy the new season!
