Understanding the Risks of Hydroplaning

One of the most dangerous types of road conditions occurs right after the rain begins. It is not uncommon for vehicles to temporarily skid across the wet road. This scary occurrence is called hydroplaning. Although hydroplaning is possible on any wet surface, it is most likely to occur during the first initial moments of a rain shower.

Although you cannot prevent hydroplaning completely, there are steps that you can take to reduce the risk. It is important to ensure that your tires are properly inflated and rotated sufficiently. Driving in a lower gear, avoiding hard braking, and staying away from standing water can also reduce the risk. The automobile safety experts at Jaguar Greensboro want you to have a safe driving experience. We welcome the opportunity to educate you about the potential dangers of the road and equip your vehicle with the tools that it needs for safe driving.
