Vehicle Accidents in Texas
Whenever vehicles hydroplane, it usually happens when rain on the road mixes with oil, creating a more slippery surface and causing wheels to lose grip. Vehicles become more unstable and likely to hydroplane, especially if they are driving at least 35 miles per hour. Whenever heavy rain occurs, the chances of drivers being involved in collisions increase, which is why it’s very important for drivers not to distract themselves while they’re driving.
