You have a responsibility as a driver out on the open roads to make sure you don’t end up endangering yourself or others. One situation that you ought to be prepared for is the very real likelihood that you will hydroplane at some point in time.

Wet and dangerous roads can cause any vehicle to begin to hydroplane. When this starts to happen, turn on your emergency lights if you are able to do so. Steer the vehicle without slamming on the brakes. You will want to take the cruise control off if you have it set. It is a lot better to take over as much control as you possibly can. Get the vehicle to a safe spot and ensure that everyone and everything in the area is okay. Once this is confirmed, then you can begin to travel on the roads again. Always make sure to stay within posted speed limits and remain highly vigilant at all times, particularly when there is bad weather.
