San Diego,CA- There is an overwhelming belief that people in Southern California do not know how to drive in the rain. This guy actually did nothing wrong he just hydroplaned and luckily did not get hurt.
A few of us stopped to make sure that he was ok. My original thought was, "Wow!" then I realized the drive train was still running so I stopped.
We are constantly amazed that when it starts to rain in people. Some drivers drive HAUL ASS.
We live in a region where it rarely rains so when it first rains the oil in the pavement comes to the top.
OIL AND WATER DO NOT MIX
So just a Southern CA tip, when it starts to rain slow down. I try not to drive during those first hours for this exact reason.
AGAIN THIS GUYS WAS DRIVING NORMALLY AND I THINK MANY OF US STOPPED BECAUSE IT COULD HAVE BEEN ANY ONE OF US.
As an addendum I found this...
