Some of the greatest dangers during inclement weather are the road conditions, as drivers can be unprepared to deal with the changes to a road’s surface. However, these dangers can exponentially increase when a road contains defects, such as being inappropriately laid or maintained, which results in the pooling of water on a road’s surface.
Pools of water can result in hydroplaning, a frightening and potentially traumatic experience wherein a car’s tires encounter a surface of water too large or wide to move through safely. The pool causes the tire to lose traction and compromises a person’s ability to steer, brake, and safely operate a vehicle.
