Rain is among the most problematic driving conditions, whether drizzles or downpours. Wet weather increases accident rates. Understanding how wet roads & poor visibility affect car handling will enable you to drive effectively in the rain.

Keep more space between your car and the one ahead of you. Driving in the rain will make it harder for you to stop your car. Keep a few car lengths of space between your vehicle and other vehicles.
