VW Golf Mark II Highlights Dangers of Driving on Wet Road

Tires are a great invention and an extremely important one. They allow a vehicle to transfer its power to the road - they’re the car’s only contact with the surface it’s driving on. They need a dry, even surface to be at their safest and most efficient.
That’s why, when it rains, things start to go wrong for some drivers who do not adapt their speed and driving style to the conditions, as rain (and the puddles that form) can make your car aquaplane, thus making you lose control.

The VW Golf in this video perfectly demonstrates the point, as it does genuinely seem to aquaplane just as it comes into the view of the dash-mounted camera and crashes into the Nissan crossover. Apparently, and slightly surprisingly, nobody was hurt, but we expect that the Golf Mk II (an old and rather unsafe car) was probably totaled.
