Learning How to Avoid Hydroplaning in Your Vehicle

When the tires on your vehicle can't scatter rain water away fast enough, the vehicle can leave the surface of the road easily. Here are a few tips to avoid hydroplaning that are simple to implement.

Water will tend to accumulate in outer lanes, so be sure to drive the inner lanes to have more contact with the road surface.

Travel in the path of the vehicle in front of you. Those tracks will have less water, making it easier for you to maintain safer driving conditions.

Slow down in the rain, take turns slower so you are not sliding off the road.

Never use cruise control when traveling on wet roads. The system will speed up the rear tires and cause you to lose control.

Don't assume your tires can handle wet roads, stop by Land Rover Fox Valley and let our technicians inspect your vehicle to make sure it is safe to drive in the rain.
