Hydroplaning may give young drivers a momentary thrill, but it’s also something that can be very dangerous. Hydroplaning occurs when the tires are on top of water rather than on the road.

  • Reduce Speed – If you’re on wet roads or see standing water, slow down and avoid using cruise control.
  • Avoid Puddles – Try to avoid driving through puddles or standing water.
  • Turn Correctly – If your car starts to slide, turn the steering wheel in the opposite direction of where it’s sliding.
  • Tire Maintenance – Inspect your tires regularly to make sure they have good thread and air pressure. Consider having them rotated and balanced around every 5000 miles.
  • Do not tail gate – Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you.
  • Follow cars – If the vehicle in front of you is leaving visible tracks, try to stay in their tracks.
