Can We All Learn How to Drive in the Rain?

The rain
Flickr user: Sean MacEntee
I’m willing to volunteer my time to teach classes about this. Why is it so hard to maintain your driving skills when a drop of water falls from the sky? It’s almost as if all of the driving experience you have goes out the window because the weather isn’t perfect.

I know it’s dangerous to speed in the rain. I know hydroplaning can end up causing serious accidents, and I’m not saying driving like a maniac is the right thing to do in situations like this.

When I’m on a single-lane road, and it’s lightly drizzling, there is absolutely no reason why we should be subject to doing 30 MPH in a 50 MPH zone. But there’s little we can do as the car in front, usually with a lighthouse on their New Jersey license plate refuses to go any faster because the scary rain is coming to get them.

If it’s an apocalyptic downpour and you can’t see two feet in front of you, by all means, play it safe. Turn those hazards on and keep both hands on the wheel. BUT A SUN SHOWER? Please, let me get to where I have to be on time.
