What to do in case you hydroplane.

Hydroplaning occurs when the tires of a car lose contact with the road and rides up on a layer of water.

Steps to take in case you hydroplane:
1. Keep the steering wheel straight.
2. Take your foot off the gas.
3. DO NOT hit the breaks.
4. DO NOT try to steer.

As you slow, the weight of the car will cause it to settle down onto the road again.
