Living in Southern California it’s easy to become accustomed to driving in pleasant weather. Even though car crashes can happen in any weather conditions, changes in weather, such as rain and snow, can become hazardous conditions regardless of driving experience.

After months of dry hot weather, a sudden rain can make streets slick and dangerous. Rain in southern California can be everything from a few sprinkles to a sudden, short heavy downpour. The first 10 minutes after rain begins are the most dangerous when he rain mixes with oil from motor vehicles and creates a slipper condition on the road.
Drivers need to take extra care.
