two

In a heavy rain, your tires can ride on a thin film of water, like skis. This is called hydroplaning. When your tires are not touching the road, you can easily lose control and skid.
Keep your tires on the road by slowing down when it rains, and by having tires with the right air pressure and good tread.
Brakes often become wet after driving through deep water or driving in heavy rain. They may pull to one side or the other, or they may not hold at all. If this happens, slow down and gently push on the brake pedal until your brakes are working again.

smog sickness.

Explanation: Be on alert for carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when poisonous gases are inhaled and are picked up quickly by the red blood cells at a higher rate than oxygen, blocking oxygen from getting into the body.
