When driving through the rain, expect the unexpected – be prepared to stop quickly and drive at a speed that enables you to do so. Remember to use your headlights if you are driving in the rain and avoid roads that are covered by standing water – remember, it takes only a few inches of water to float a vehicle. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN. If a traffic signal is out, treat the intersection as a four-way stop. If you come across a downed power line, do not try to move it – call your power company immediately. If a power line falls on your car, you are safe as long as you stay inside – if you have to jump out, be sure not to touch the car and ground at the same time.
