With the rainy season upon us, you need to be abreast of what you need to do to be as safe as possible when driving in the rain. There are a number of steps you need to take to drive safely in the rain, including turning on your head and taillights. With the headlights on, you're better able to see what is ahead. In addition, you let other motorists know you're there.

Don't use your cruise control when motoring in the rain. A primary way of preventing a loss of control is gently reducing your speed by taking your foot off the gas pedal. This can't be done when you have the cruise control activated. Above all, when driving in the rain, slow down.
