Always slow down if you are driving in the rain. Don't try to show off to those that are in the car with you but drive safely and at a speed you feel comfortable with.

Great tips! Thank you Werf and Huon for posting Smile

Here in london, it rains all the time, so we have no choice but to drive in the rain. And we have phases of sudden heavy showers mixed with light ones, so no one really pulls over or the traffic would come to a halt half the year round!

Hence, we continue driving, but slow down, try to maintain distance from the car in front of you, switch on lights as the visibility is quite poor, avoid breaking suddenly and try to stay as alert as possible!

It appears that you would be right at home driving in Western Oregon except for the driving on the left thing. Rain, more rain, mist, fog, and another thing we call freezing rain which is the worst. Rain freezes to the road surface and becomes a skating rink. I have been stopped with the brakes engaged waiting for the road to clear of fender benders and spun out vehicles and slid to the curb from the slight crown of the road! Concerning the use of headlights I recently discovered that there is a new statute that requires headlights be on if you are using your windshield wipers. Not a bad idea but it was not disclosed to the general public. I have found in recent years that new traffic laws laws are kept as secrets. I have to think that this allows enforcement to issue many citations before the public is aware of the new law. I know in my small town and many others enforcement of traffic laws are not about public safety. They are about city revenue.
