Which of the following is NOT true about driving in the rain?

A All of the above statements are true.

There are a number of steps you can take to improve safety when you are driving in the rain. First of all, you must drive at a suitable speed. Your ability to safely corner and brake will be reduced on wet roads. If the rain is heavy, you should disable your cruise control, reduce your speed, and corner with care to avoid hydroplaning. Finally, you should turn on your headlights to help other drivers see you. Remember that the road will often be slipperiest during the first few minutes of rainfall as the oil and dirt on the road combines with the water.
