1. Water on the road can cause a vehicle to hydroplane. Your car may hydroplane at speeds as low as:

Explanation
Hydroplaning occurs when there is standing water on a roadway. At speeds up to 35 mph, most tires will channel water away from the tire. As your speed increases past 35 mph, tires cannot channel the water as well and your tires may start to lose contact with the road and ride over the water like a set of water skis.

2. When you are behind a motorcycle, you should:

Explanation
When following a motorcyclist, allow for at least a three- to four-second following distance. Motorcycles can stop quickly and following them too closely endangers your life and that of the motorcyclist. If the motorcyclist should fall, you need extra distance to avoid the rider. The chances of a fall are greatest on wet and icy roads, gravel roads, and metal surfaces such as bridges, gratings, and streetcar or railroad tracks.

3. If you want to pass a pedestrian who is walking along the roadway and an oncoming vehicle is approaching, you should:
