Hydroplaning is a dangerous situation that can lead to you being severely injured or even killed. To keep yourself safe, you need to know what to do to avoid hydroplaning while you are driving in wet conditions.

The most obvious step to take to avoid hydroplaning involves simply slowing down. Avoid driving at top speeds. You may not even want to drive the speed limit when the roads are especially wet or flooded. Driving fast makes your car more difficult to control.

Further, make sure your tires are suited for driving in wet conditions. You should keep them aired up to the full air weight limit. If they are flat, they can skid and hydroplane easier than if they are full.

Finally, rotate your tires every three to six months. Rotating your tires regularly ensures even wear and tear. It protects your tread and allows your tires to grip the road better.
