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, once. It was pretty darn scary and not something I want to repeat. I slow down in the rain.

One slight experience only, I don't push against the natures elements by my choices when driving. Only this very morning I helped a neighbor recover from a weird happening, still un-explained but repairs on track(plan working)at least and plenty speculation.... ? ? ?
