How to Avoid Hydroplaning

One of the scariest situations you can encounter while driving is hydroplaning. It occurs when there’s more water on the ground than your vehicle can push through. When you feel that gliding sensation, it’s because the water has taken control of your car’s wheels by coming between them and the road’s surface.

There are some precautions you can take to avoid hydroplaning. One of them, of course, is to slow down while in a downpour or when you’re approaching standing water. Aside from reducing your speed, the correct way to avoid this situation is to keep the tires properly maintained. When they have appropriate tread and air pressure, they’re able to create needed traction with the road. It’s also recommended to rotate and balance them every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, so they wear more evenly.

When you have questions about your car’s tires, or any other aspect of vehicle maintenance, don’t hesitate to stop in to the Honda repair department at Priority Honda Chesapeake. A knowledgeable member of our team will be happy to assist you.
