Driving in the Rain

Tips for Driving in the Rain
Rain makes roads slick, especially when the rain follows weeks or months of very dry weather. Additionally, rain reduces visibility. With these effects in mind, motorists who find themselves driving in the rain are advised to:
- Reduce their speed 5 mph below the speed limit
- Turn on their headlights
- Avoid sudden acceleration
- Avoid sudden braking
Following these tips may help drivers avoid accidents in heavy rain. Unfortunately, not every motorist will be as cautious when driving in the rain, making some accidents unavoidable. When drivers suffer harm from others who drive recklessly in the rain, they may be entitled to financial compensation.
Employing safe driving strategies in the rain may not be enough to save you from the actions of reckless drivers.
