Luxembourg has been under a dry spell for weeks but rain is expected to celebrate a comeback later this Wednesday. Drivers will have to be extra careful.
Once the rain returns, roads are likely to become extra slippery because oils, fuels, and parts of rubber tyres may have accumulated on Luxembourg's roads after this prolonged period of extremely dry and warm weather.
According to France's Meuse police department, braking distance may increase along with the risk of losing control over your vehicle. Police stressed that motorcyclists have to be particularly wary of slick streets and potentially reduced helmet visibility.
Police reiterated the importance of maintaining a safe trailing distance from other vehicle and of adapting the driving style to the weather conditions.
