Driving in the rain is not ideal, and you should try to avoid it as much as you can, but there are circumstances in which you won’t be able to avoid it. You should take action to know what safety measures to take when you do end up in the rain.

The first thing to do is slow down your speed. Take it slow while it is raining to allow for the most response time possible. Additionally, understand that you need space between yourself and other drivers. Keep plenty of distance between yourself and the next guy.

Both hands on the wheel also makes sense at a time like this. You want to have the fastest reaction time that you can while out there. Keep your hands and your focus away from things like your cell phone at a time like this. Doing those three things goes a long way towards safer roads.
