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. When driving in wet conditions, cut the risk of hydroplaning by reducing vehicle speed and making sure tires are properly inflated and have sufficient tread. 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
