Tips to Avoid Hydroplaning During Rainy Weather

July 30th, 2019 by

One of the most common reasons drivers lose control of their vehicles during rainy weather is hydroplaning. Hydroplaning happens when there is more water on the roadway than the car’s tires can displace, causing the vehicle to slid or skid across the surface of the water. Because we value all of our customers at The Sharpe Collection], we offer the following tips for avoiding hydroplaning, which can cause you to lose control of your ability to steer or brake when driving.

Keeping your tires properly inflated is a smart first step. Don’t drive on bald tires and replace worn out tires when necessary. Slow your speed when driving during rainfalls, especially during the initial minutes of a storm when water mixes with oil already on the roadways. Avoid hard braking and using cruise control, and eliminate quick turns. Our service department is ready to assist with any service to help keep your tires and braking system in good repair.
