How to handle hydroplaning on the freeway

Wet roadways, especially prevalent here in the Pacific Northwest, present some driving hazards that can catch drivers off guard. One of those hazards is hydroplaning. Hydroplaning means a loss of traction and sliding on a film of water. Wet road surfaces can cause tires to hydroplane. This could result in the loss of control and steering ability, as your tires may lose contact with the pavement, and an accident might happen within seconds. It's a scary feeling to suddenly feel your car hydroplaning, but here are some things you can do to recover control of your vehicle quickly.
