Driving in the rain is inherently more risky, given that the roads are more slick and it is more difficult to see, making it complicated and stressful for just about everyone on the road. Because of these reasons, driving on the road is more hazardous compared to driving when it’s not raining. However, people still need to get to where they need to be and it is important to practice extra precautions when driving in the rain to reduce your risks of being involved in an accident.
