After seeing that picture, I realized I never noticed. Never really caught my eye. My laneway is on a slant too, so water never stays there.

mine sorta stays there but it just beads off. as you go to stop it runs forward then the wind catches it and blows it on the windshield.

I guess I drive to fast for the water to collect there. Raydene watches for the Po lice and I watch the road and traffic. We do good.

I swear like a gallon of water collects in the middle of my hood when its downpouring and I'm goin down the highway, but it stays there and then when I stop it just runs off the front.
