Warmer spring weather in Phoenix also often brings sudden spring storms. These storms can cause water to accumulate on the road. If you speed through standing water in your car, you could end up hydroplaning. This is when your car is gliding along on the water, and you don't have any steering control. Here are some basic tips from Bueno Used Cars to help you avoid this scary situation.

The most important tip is to make sure you slow down when the roads are wet. Driving slower will help your tires grip the road better so that they can stop your vehicle if you need to apply the brakes. You can go under the speed limit when you encounter wet roads.

Another good way to avoid hydroplaning is to make sure your tires are in good condition. The grooves on your tires are designed to channel water away from the road to help your tires maintain contact with the pavement. If your tires are worn, they won't be able to provide this protection, greatly increasing your chances of hydroplaning.
