Has Your Car Ever Hydroplaned?

Hydroplaning can be a frightful experience, especially if you are driving on a busy road or at a high rate of speed. When the rain falls faster than roads are able to drain, a lot of water can build up. When that water gets between your tires and the road, hydroplaning is the result.

When your car hydroplanes, you could lose control of your brakes and steering. Driving slowly in heavy rain lessens your car's risk of hydroplaning. You can also lessen your risk by ensuring that your tires are in good condition and have enough tread to provide traction.
