Hydroplaning

If water has accumulated to a certain depth on the road surface, there is a danger of hydroplaning occurring, even if:
Х you drive at low speeds.
Х the tires have adequate tread depth.

For this reason, in the event of heavy rain or in conditions in which hydroplaning can occur you must drive in the following manner:
Х reduce your speed
Х avoid ruts
Х brake carefully
