    Rain doesn’t cause accidents. Drivers go too fast, don’t come to complete stops at stop signs or, as the law states, you must come to a complete stop BEFORE MAKING A RIGHT TURN ON RED. Slow down, check mirrors and blind spots and drive with 3 to 4 seconds of following distance behind another vehicle. This is what stops collisions.
