Which of the following statements about driving in the rain are true?


On wet roads, your stopping distance is increased and there is a greater risk of skidding or hydroplaning. Slow down below the legal speed limit and increase your following distance. Mississippi law requires you to turn on your headlights whenever you cannot see clearly at least 500 feet ahead. Your headlights will also make your vehicle more visible to others. Don't use your cruise control on wet roads. If your vehicle loses traction, the cruise control may spin the drive wheels in an attempt to maintain a constant speed. This can worsen or even cause a skid. [Tips for Safer Driving, Safe Driving Practices, Mississippi Driver's Manual]
