A new survey has found that those drivers such as those with Peugeot cars have voted Prince's Purple Rain as the greatest rain-based song ever written.

Research published by Uniroyal Tyres has found that the 1983 track topped people's favourites, pipping The Weather Girls' It's Raining Men and Guns 'N Roses' November Rain to the top spot.

The survey was conducted as part of an initiative to highlight the risks that those driving in wet weather conditions face and the importance of having good quality tyres.

A spokesperson for the company said that the topic is one that has remained popular among songwriters for some time and that there were a lot of choices.

He said: "Driving in the rain can be a tense experience even with your favourite song on the radio. Motorists need to be more careful as visibility is reduced and stopping distances increased."

The importance of preparing for unusual weather conditions was recently highlighted by the Institute of Advanced Motoring, which has launched a new initiative to prepare drivers for winter.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801224249-ADNFCR
