How to Drive in the Rain

It's important to be able to adjust your style of driving to the conditions you're driving in. For example, you wouldn't handle off-roading the same way you approach your typical weekday commute. In the same way, you also have to adjust to adverse weather conditions.

Rain can be challenging to drive in. Hydroplaning is a major concern whenever there's water on the road. To maintain good traction, make it a point to drive a bit slower than normal when it rains. If you do feel the car hydroplaning, don't apply the brakes. This can make things worse. Simply keep steering and ride it out.

The second reason to drive slowly in the rain is also a good one. Water on the road will increase your safe stopping distance. Going slower means you will be less likely to end up in a collision with another vehicle while driving or at a stoplight.
