Knowing What It Takes to Avoid Hydroplaning in Wet Weather

Last updated 4 years ago

When your car’s tires do not have sufficient traction, they will be more prone to hydroplaning. When this occurs, your car loses all traction and will slide uncontrollably down the road. Watch this video to learn how you can avoid hydroplaning while driving in wet weather.

The best way to avoid hydroplaning is to maintain your tires. If your tires are worn, they will be more susceptible to hydroplaning. When you replace your tires, get all-season tires that are able to maintain good traction on wet and icy roads. In addition to replacing your tires on a regular basis, it is also a good idea to slow down when you are traveling over wet surfaces, as your chances of hydroplaning go up as you increase your speed.
