### What should you do if your car starts hydroplaning or skidding?

Turn the wheel firm and sharp

• B.

Try to gradually lower your speed

• C.

Step firm on the brake

• D.

YEEEEHHHHAWWWWW BBBAAABBBYYY!

• E.

Try to steer off or away from the road.

Correct Answer
B. Try to gradually lower your speed
Explanation
Hydroplaning is when your car is slipping on wet roads. Turning your wheel sharp will cause your car to go even more out of control. Stepping firm on the brakes will lock you tires up (stop them from spinning) and you will continue to slide even more. Steering off the road will probably make you hit something or wreck your car. Gradually lowering your speed will allow your tires to regain friction (grip) with the road and allow you to gain control of your car again.

Drive slowly to avoid sudden turns or stops

Correct Answer
D. Drive slowly to avoid sudden turns or stops

Driving slowly allows for more control of your vehicle, especially for avoiding sudden turns and stops. Pumping your brakes will cause you to slide and allowing less space will reduce your reaction time and cause you to "suddenly stop", which really is just sliding on the ice.
