How to Safely Avoid Hydroplaning in Your Vehicle

When the tires on your vehicle are unable to scatter rain water fast enough, the result could be your vehicle skids off the road. To avoid hydroplaning, consider these safety tips when you drive.

Never drive on wet roads with the cruise control activated or the rear tires could continue spinning while you lose control of the vehicle.

Always drive in a low gear on wet roads, and try to avoid hard braking so you maintain control of your vehicle.

On wet roads you will need to put more distance between you and the car ahead. This will allow you ample time to brake without having to slide off the road surface because you slammed on the brakes with no room to spare.

Take your vehicle to Cawood Honda and let one of our tire techs carefully analyze the condition of your tires to help improve your ability to navigate wet roads.
