How to Avoid Hydroplaning

Hydroplaning occurs when water builds up in front of your tires faster than your vehicle can push it away. When this occurs, your car will feel like it's gliding and you can control instantaneously. That's why it's important to know what to do when a sudden downpour occurs. Sudden accelerations in speed can lead to hydroplaning and loss of control during downpours.

Regularly rotating and balancing your tires can do a lot to prevent hydroplaning. Another way to prevent hydroplaning is to turn off cruise control when you are on the highway during rainy conditions. Reduced speed is another consideration. When you are traveling slower, you'll have increased control of your vehicle, which can reduce the chances of hydroplaning.
