When Your Car Starts to Hydroplane

If you are driving down the road on a rainy day and your car starts to lose grip on the road, this is hydroplaning. This occurs when the road gets wet, and the water combines with any oil that is on the surface. Your car can slip easily when the road conditions are wet.

Get your tires checked at Toyota of Scranton in our service center if you aren't sure they are safe on the road. Poorly inflated tires or those that are worn down are more likely to cause hydroplaning in rainy weather. If your tires haven't been rotated lately, it's time to have your tires checked for safety.

Driving too fast or braking hard can also cause you to hydroplane in wet weather. Pay attention around corners and drive slower than the speed limit when necessary. When road conditions are poor, it is always better to give yourself enough time to get to your destination.
