'Tis the season as the cool kids say. As the rainy days come for many cities across the country, hydroplaning is one of the burdens that come with the rain. This typically occurs when water on a road renders your inputs to the car useless. As a result, your car is essentially like one of those teacup rides at Disneyland as your only useful tool is your steering wheel. Just steer your car if hydroplaning occurs. Don't use the gas or your brakes. It should be noted that vehicles hydroplane at speeds over 53 mph. It should also be noted that all-wheel drive vehicles are less likely to hydroplane. Check out this video by Defensive Driving for a good explanation on hydroplaning.
