Avoid Hydroplaning with These Safety Tips

If you drive in a region that experiences heavy rain, learning to handle a car when water is standing on the road will help you avoid hydroplaning. Hydroplaning happens when excess water under a car's tires causes it to lose traction and slide out of control.

Hydroplaning can catch you off guard if you aren't aware of the conditions that cause it. It's important to reduce your speed and turn off cruise control when you notice standing water on the road or if you're driving through a downpour. If a downpour is extreme, it can be best to pull over until it passes.
