Wet Roads are Dangerous Roads

I actively plan to try and avoid nighttime driving when I can (not an issue on daily train commute, so this just means when traveling which also adds unfamiliar roads...(

Years ago, we were driving to NH on a rainy Friday night. Traffic was packed together on a two-lane Interstate going over 70 MPH. It was ridiculous. Any collision would have involved dozens of cars.
