Making sharp turns or braking too hard come off as bad ideas under any road conditions. Committing these two actions in wet conditions represents dangerous behavior. The same would be true with speeding and even using cruise control. When the road is wet, drivers must be extra careful since a vehicle could hydroplane and crash.

Hydroplaning often happens when rain mixes with residue on the road. Oil, in particular, contributes to rainy roads becoming slick. Once a vehicle picks up speed on slick roads, it can hydroplane. That is, it may slide or skid and cause an accident. Driving carefully in these conditions is critical.

Proper car care might cut down on the chances of hydroplaning. Worn out and improperly inflated tires might hydroplane. Keep tires in good condition and make sure a technician inspects them.
