Truck drivers need to take special precautions when driving in the rain. If they don't, they put themselves, as well as other drivers, at risk of being involved in an accident.
Fortunately, there are steps that truckers can take to improve their performance and stay safe, even when the rain is pouring down. First and foremost, truckers should slow down in wet conditions. This helps to avoid hydroplaning, which is a leading cause of truck accidents.
