There are three main factors that contribute to aquaplaning:
The speed. As speed increases the tension decreases to the point where we completely loss traction and the car control.
The tires. As the tires get worn, they will lose their ability to resist aquaplaning.
Water depth. The deeper the water depth, the faster you lose traction.

If it rains or if the pavement is still wet, the driver must:

• Reduce speed, adapting it to the slippery conditions and visibility
• Keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead
• Provide a greater stopping distance (the braking distance increases by approximately 50%)
• Avoid sudden acceleration and braking
• If your car slips, remember not to hit the brakes. Instead, make a constant braking and turn the steering wheel in the direction of the skidding
