All of that should be common sense.

I'm really surprised that the article didn't mention that if it hasn't rained in a while, when the rain first starts the pavement can be exceptionally slick until the rain has washed the accumulation of schmutz from the road. Living in Minnesota, where it rains regularly, I was unaware of the concept, but one time in downtown Salt Lake City, when the rain first started I attempted to stop at the next red light and slid right on through the intersection. Fortunately, I was driving a minivan and the intersection was virtually empty, so I neither tipped over nor hit any vehicles as I hydroplaned through at full speed . . . .

Fun fact: "Schmutz" is the German word for dirt.o_O

Ha - that's funny!

I've been using that word lately, but didn't know it was actually a real word.

Probably stuck in my head from my parents and grandparents or something. German on both sides.

BTW if you want to know how it's correctly pronounced in German you just have to click on the loudspeaker symbol next to the word on the right side:https://www.dict.cc/?s=Schmutz
