Explanation
To prevent hydroplaning, lower your speed in response to wet roads and keep your tires in good condition. If you detect a loss of control, take your foot off the gas, do not apply the brakes, maintain the direction of the vehicle, and allow the vehicle to slow to a manageable speed.

2. This sign means:

hawaii-do not enter
Explanation
This sign means that it is not safe for drivers to enter the indicated road or driveway from their current direction. If you come across one of these signs, you should immediately turn around and drive a different way.

3. How fast you drive does not affect the distance your vehicle travels after you brake to come to a stop.

Explanation
When driving in high-speed traffic, it is extremely important to stay well behind the vehicle in front of you. As your speed increases, the distance it will take for your vehicle to stop also increases.

4. At a school crossing sign, you should:

Pentagonal signs mean you are approaching a school zone and/or school crossing. When you see these signs, be alert and prepare to stop.

6. At an intersection with stop signs on all corners, yield the right-of-way to any driver:

Explanation
After coming to a full stop, vehicles should proceed through a four-way stop in the order in which they arrive to the intersection. If multiple vehicles arrive at the same time, the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.

7. Hydroplaning is usually caused by:

Explanation
Your tires become less effective at clearing water from the road as you increase your speed. If you drive too fast, they may lose their grip entirely, leaving the vehicle sliding on a film of water. This is known as "hydroplaning."

8. Roads become very slippery:

Explanation
Pavement can become very slippery within the first 10 to 15 minutes of a rainstorm because the rain causes oil in the asphalt to rise to the surface of the road. This problem becomes even worse in hot weather. The heat combined with the water causes more oil to rise to the road surface.
