Question:

At higher speeds in heavy rain, your tires can ride on a film of water and lose contact with the road. This hazard is known as

A
Explaination

On a wet road, at speeds of up to 35 mph, modern tires will usually channel water away to maintain contact with the road. However, in deep water at higher speeds, the channeling action of the tires becomes less effective and the tires start to ride on a layer of water like water skis. This is called "hydroplaning." It may result in a loss of braking and steering control. To prevent hydroplaning, slow down.
