Anyway, back to the task at fingers. In the rain, obviously you shouldn't go
max speed. I know, you're never supposed to go over it, but, uhh, yeah. The safe speed would be 55mph, or less, depending on how hard it's raining and how wet the roads are. I'm not going to stop someone going 65, but if I'm only going 55 (or less) because of the weather, and you pass me, then I'll write that ticket. I know, "Who would pass a cop?" You'd be surprised!
