After it has rained for 20 minutes

Roads are most slippery just after the rain begins because oil dropped from cars has not been washed away. The road is at its most slippery during the first 20-30 minutes of rain after a long, dry spell. when it starts raining the water pulls up all the oils (oil floats on water) and everything from the road, makes it much more slick, causing a loss of traction and increases the risk of hydroplaning.
