Thanks to the Air Bag System in our 2007 Nissan Versa, my wife suffered minor injuries when the car Hydroplaned on the 101 near Santa Barbara during a rain storm last year. Even when driving through sitting water on the freeway with good tires and at a safe speed, hydroplaning can occur simply due to the separation and lift created by water between the tire surface and the road. Unfortunately, the car was a total loss and fortunately my wife wasn't. We loved that little car, but I love my wife more.
