Lada Driver Hydroplanes into the Back of a Van in Russia [Video]
text size: A- A+
Well, hydroplaning (or aquaplaning) would be the answer here, which occurs when the tire tread is so worn out, that the car simply skips over the water. This means that the driver has absolutely no control over the direction or speed of the vehicle. As you can see in the video, the driver has the wheels turned to the left, and the brakes are on, yet nothing is happening.
Even cars with good tires can suffer as a result of too-large-a-puddle on the road, so it’s always to better to be safe, and avoid or slow down, whenever a possible aquaplaning situation may occur.
