It's even bad enough trying to drive when it's raining. The problem here is that since it doesn't rain that often, most people have little or no experience or skill with driving in the rain. When it does actually rain, people get scared and drive like idiots. Making is much more dangerous. I've seen people slam on their brakes when a little bit of drizzle hits their windshield and the ground is still dry. It's pretty ridiculous.
