Rain and wind

On wet road surfaces, tyre grip is halved, stopping distances are doubled, and accidents are twice as frequent.

Maximum speed: 110 km/h

  • Drive at a safe distance from the vehicle in front (two white lines at least).
     
  • In poor visibility:
    - Slow down
    - Increase the distance from the vehicle in front
    - Switch on your dipped-beam headlights

Wind

  • Pay attention to the striped red and white "windsocks", which indicate the wind speed and direction.
  • Wind is a serious risk, especially under the following conditions:
    - If your car is heavily loaded
    - If you’re towing a caravan or trailer
    - If you’re driving a van or lorry
    - When you’re overtaking a heavy goods vehicle.
