Avoiding Hydroplaning and Keeping Safe When Motoring

One of the most dangerous types of situations that can occur when motoring in inclement weather is hydroplaning. Thousands of accidents occur annually because of hydroplaning. Hydroplaning occurs when tires lose their grip on a roadway because of water. A vehicle will end up sliding, slipping, and skidding. There are some things you can do to lessen the risk that your car will hydroplane when on a wet roadway.

Maintaining a proper tire pressure, regularly rotating your tires, and replacing them when they are worn are all crucial when it comes to preventing hydroplaning. You also need to slow down, avoid sharp turns, drive in a lower gear and make smooth and not sudden lane changes when a road is wet.
