Good Vision in Heavy Downpour

Not sure if this is true, haven't really try it myself. Have you? Mind to share a bit if you had?

How to achieve good vision while driving during a heavy downpour? We are not sure why it is so  effective; just try this method when it rains  heavily.

This method was told by a  Police friend who had experienced and confirmed  it. It is useful...even driving at  night.

Most of the motorists would  turn on HIGH or FASTEST SPEED of the wipers  during heavy downpour, yet the visibility in  front of the windshield is still  bad......

In the event you face  such a situation, just put on  your SUN  GLASSES (any  model will do), and miracle!

All of  a sudden, your visibility in front of your  windshield is perfectly  clear, as if there  is no rain.

Make sure you always  have a pair of SUN GLASSES in your  car.

You are not only helping  yourself to drive safely with good vision, but  also might save your friend's life  by giving him  this idea..

Try it yourself and  share it with your  friends!???

Amazing, you still see  the drops on the windshield, but not the sheet  of rain falling!

You can see where the  rain bounces off the road.  It works to  eliminate the "blindness" from passing  cars.                      

Or the  "kickup" if you are following a car in the  rain.

They ought  to teach this little tip in driver's training..   It really does work.

This is  a good warning. I wonder how many people knew  about this.

Another good  tip

A 36 year old female had an  accident several weeks ago. It was raining,  though not excessively and her car suddenly  began to hydro-plane and literally flew  through the air.    She was not seriously injured but  very stunned at the sudden occurrence!   When she explained to the highway  patrolman what had happened,

He told her  something that every driver should know  - NEVER DRIVE  IN THE RAIN WITH YOUR CRUISE CONTROL  ON ... 

She thought   she was being cautious by setting the  cruise control and maintaining a safe consistent  speed in the rain.. But the highway patrolman  told her that if the cruise control is on, your  car will begin to hydro-plane when the tires  lose contact with the pavement, and your car  will accelerate to a higher rate of speed  making you take off like an  airplane.

She told  the patrolman that was exactly what had occurred.  The patrolman said this warning should be listed,  on the driver's seat sun visor - NEVER USE THE  CRUISE CONTROL WHEN THE PAVEMENT IS WET OR  ICY, along with  the airbag warning. We tell our teenagers to set  the cruise control and drive a safe speed - but  we don't tell  them to use the cruise control only when the  pavement is dry.

The only person, the  accident victim found, who knew this (besides the  patrolman), was a man who had a similar accident,  totaled his car and sustained severe injuries.
