Driving in the Rain

Under conditions of heavy rain on highways reduce speed by 20 mph.

But here's another tip. The driving books all state "keep to the right lane".

All highways, however are NOT flat. They have slopes to drain water.

On a three lane highway in a heavy rain the far right lane will have twice the volume of water on the surface, increasing the chance of hydroplaning.

Thus, the middle lane will be the safest.
