The rain forces non drivers to stay inside and it clears the road for others.
Can confirm. Spritzing rain? Quick, Everybody drop to a snail's pace!Annoyingly, it doesn't work like that here in Pennsylvania. People don't run for cover when it rains here, they just turn into useless idiots (not that most are any good at driving to begin with, but still).
Being forced to share the road with a mass mob of incompetency is the only thing I hate about driving in the rain.
