To demonstrate hydroplane conditions and how to recover, CHP Officer Dan Wright takes The Sacramento Bee for a spin on the academy's hazardous-conditions track in West Sacramento.

If the vehicle begins to slide, back off the gas and steer into the direction you want the vehicle to travel. Interview by Ed Fletcher. Manny Crisostomo The Sacramento Bee
