Drive through it as slowly as possible. And apply the brakes after you get through the puddle to dry them out. Even the slightest wet road is dangerous. It can result in hydroplaning or cause an accident. Even one half of water can cause a driver to lose control of the car. Driving slow can help prevent the loss of control of the vehicle. The driver should enter the road at 1-2 mph and then adjust their speed dependent upon how the car drives once on the road. Drying the brakes ensure that the brakes will continue to work properly, rain or shine.

D is the answer to this question. B and C are correct. First of all, you need to make sure that you will be driving slowly through the puddle. If you make the mistake of driving too fast, there is a higher chance that various parts of your vehicle will be splashed by the puddle. There may also be some people around the area that may also become splashed by the water. Slowing down will also make sure that your wheels will not go berserk. Sometimes, the wheels of the car may become too slippery, and they may go off-road. This is something that you would like to avoid, especially at this time.

D is the answer to this question. Both B and C are the proper things that you can do, especially if you have to drive through the puddle. You need to remember that even though it seems fun to drive through some puddles, it will only take a certain amount of water to make you lose control of your vehicle. Can you already imagine what will happen if you lose control of your car?

This can be problematic. You might get into an accident, and you might be a hazard to other people who are also driving. The best thing that you can do is to slow down so that you will lessen the possibility of slipping. After that, you need to apply the brakes so that you will not slip.

The correct answer is D, both B and C are correct. Wet roads are dangerous and can lead to hydroplaning or an accident resulting in death. Just over one-half if water can cause the control of the car to be loss. It is best to drive slow as possible, entering the road at 1-2 mph and then driving at 3-4 mph.

Driving at this slow speed helps avoid engine flooding. The car can also be protected by driving in low gear. It is also important to apply brakes lightly to dry them out. This is because water can reduce the brakes effectiveness and drying them out ensures they will keep working properly.
