Through the first half of 2013, it has been wet and rainy in Illinois. Up to the end of June, there has been a record setting 28.46 inches of rain. To contrast, this is more than the precipitation the fell throughout the entire year of 2012. While this is good news for the crops, it is not good news for commuters.
Rain can make roads very treacherous to navigate, especially because people don't know how to drive safely in adverse weather. While rain is not the leading cause of car accidents, it does have a variety of effects on the conditions of roads. It increases the time needed for braking because the water decreases friction, especially if oil and grease slicks up the road. It also makes it more difficult to see other cars and hazards on the motorways.
Following some tips will ensure your safety on the road.
