I am sure everyone in the Baltimore area and Maryland experienced the rather quick switch in weather from sunshine, to heavy rain, some sunshine, light rain, sunshine, heavy rain! It was a little bit ridiculous. It’s a good reminder to be prepared for anything when driving and to stay alert. You need to be constantly aware of the driving conditions you are dealing with, espicially in wet weather.
A few weeks ago when I was headed to the Baltimore Grand Prix Economic Press Conference, it was raining like nobody’s business! Not far from my house these was this accident. It was pretty serious as you can see from the pictures. These two small SUVS did a lot of damage hitting each other, at what I assumed was relatively low speeds. This was most likely due to the fact that one of the drivers did not adjust their driving for wet conditions. Since they were relatively the same size and type of vehicle, it seemed nobody was seriously injued. (Actually both were Honda CRVs). Consider if one of the vehicles was a truck hitting a compact car. Not good!
