I've seen it happen and had it happen to me before in a typical Florida summer heavy downpour. It's kind of like sliding in snow. Luckily, it was only for a brief moment. Fortunately I have not been in any kind of major accident as a result of it.

Yes - went through a 15 foot wide puddle, hydroplaned, and smacked into a guardrail. Not fun.

In fact, speed, bed tires and drivers may have contributed to a few spin outs that I saw yesterday too!

I was on the verge and could tell that I should slow down. I did, and never lost control.

People here must be crazy drivers. I haven't even felt a slip since they invented modern tires.

Yes, and it resulted in a serious accident. Fortunately, I was wearing my seatbelt, and my airbags deployed properly.
