Staying Safe Despite a Hydroplane

Hydroplaning can be one of the scariest feelings in the world. You suddenly lose control of your vehicle, and your first instinct is to brake harder. Hard breaking amidst a hydroplane can actually cause more damage than it can cause good. The best way to handle a hydroplane is to calm down, let your foot off the accelerator, and then try to maneuver the vehicle away from the impending crash. The way to move the vehicle away from an accident is to turn the front wheels the opposite of the way you want the car to go. This may be scary to do as you seem to get closer to crashing, but you can recover.

You can prevent hydroplaning by making sure that your tires are always properly inflated. The mechanics at our dealership can check that for you. All you need to do is set an appointment to bring the car to us.
