Default Why can't people drive in the rain?

Someone caused a 4 car pile up on I-10 this morning, I happened to be car #3. Now my TA is totaled! Pics coming as soon as I can get them off my phone.

Sorry to hear that I have a buddy who has a 5.0 and can't keep it on the road in the rain. Some people just can't drive. I'm glad your O.K.

I would personally buy it back and drive it like it is..

We almost got in a wreck today since some ******* cut in front of us and then got in the turn lane but was sticking halfway out into our lane. We were pulling my 73 camaro in my friends F150, the brakes locked and he just barely maneuvered around him.. There was nothing we could do but hold on.

That's one thing I have never understood, it freaking rains here like every day just about and people still can't drive in it!!

Sorry for your loss man! Hope it all works out, and at least your ok, metal can be fixed, people can't be brought back....

Those aren't the ones causing the accidents. It is the idiots who see everyone else driving a safe speed in the rain, who then think they should do 80+ mph and weave in/out of the slower cars leaving gaps for themselves...who lose control or slam into someone when their tires don't grip. Most people don't realize they are actually riding on top of water above 55 mph, your tire contact patch almost disappears, and gets smaller the faster you go.

i agree for he most part but when you are doing 60mph in a 70 while its raining and the tard in the other lane doing 45 just shoots over in from of you b/c they saw a puddle of water... yea they cause a few too. but yea the idiots that do 80 or so probably cause more wrecks. i believe everyone should have to take a driving course in water and have to deal with come controlled spins. i did it and iv had to use those skills a few times and it has saved my butt.

Most rain accidents are caused by people who think of buying new tires as a dreadful chore. They choose to drive around on bald tires just because they hold air. So, essentially they do not value their lives or their cars too much, since that is what is ultimately at risk.
