Fw: Driving In The Rain

VERY  GOOD  INFORMATION
Subj: Driving In The Rain - Very Effective!!
 Could be worth knowing.
Don't know if all of this is true, but sounds reasonable.
Importance: High

THERE ARE TWO SUGGESTIONS IN THIS EMAIL. PLEASE READ BOTH OF THEM.
 We are not sure why it is so effective; just try this method when it
 rains heavily. This method was told by a Police friend who had  experienced and confirmed it. It is useful...even driving at night. Most of the motorists would turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in front of the windshield is still bad.......In the event you face such a situation, just try your SUN GLASSES (any model will do), and miracle! All of a sudden, your visibility in front of your windshield is perfectly clear, as if there is no rain.  Make sure you always have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your car , as you are not only helping yourself to drive safely with good vision, but also might save your friend's life by giving him this idea..

Try it yourself and share it with your friends! Amazing, you still see the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet of rain falling. You can see where the rain bounces off the road. It works to eliminate the "blindness" from passing semi's spraying you too. Or the "kickup" if you are following a semi or car in the rain. They ought to teach that little tip in driver's training.. It really does  work. This warning is a good one! wonder how many people know about this..  A 36 year old female had an accident several weeks ago and totaled her car. A resident of Kilgore , Texas she was traveling between Gladewater and Kilgore. It was raining, though not excessively, when her car suddenly  began to hydro-plane and literally flew through the air. She was not seriously injured but very stunned at the sudden occurrence!  When she explained to the highway patrolman what had happened he told her something that every driver should know - NEVER DRIVE IN THE RAIN  WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL ON. She thought she was being cautious by setting the cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent speed in the rain.  But the highway patrolman told her that if the cruise control is on when  your car begins to hydro-plane and your tires lose contact with the  pavement, your car will accelerate to a higher rate of speed making you take off like an airplane. She told the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.  The patrolman said this warning should be listed, on the driver's seat sun-visor - NEVER USE THE CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR ICY, along with the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set the cruise control and drive a safe speed - but we don't tell them to use the cruise control only when the pavement is dry.  The only person the accident victim found, who knew this (besides the  patrolman), was a man who had a similar accident, totaled his car and sustained severe injuries.
 

NOTE: Some vehicles (like the Toyota Sienna Limited XLE) will not allow you to set the cruise control when the windshield wipers are on.
