How to Avoid Hydroplaning Before Hitting the Road

When your car tires have trouble scattering rain fast enough, you can lose control easily while driving. Here are some things to consider even before you travel on those wet roads.

Take a look at the tire treads for any uneven signs of wear. Make sure you have your vehicle scheduled for regular tire rotations.

Make a conscious effort to start traveling with more distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you so that you will have plenty of space to come to a safe stop if needed.

Never use your cruise control on wet roads. The system will try to speed up the tire if you begin hydroplaning, and could result in you losing control quickly.

Avoid any standing water or large puddles while driving.
