Hydroplaning is more than just a scary situation to find yourself in while driving. It can also lead to you being seriously injured or even killed. Use these tips to help you prevent hydroplaning the next time you drive in wet conditions.

First, you should make sure that your tires are properly inflated. Flat tires or tires that are not aired up enough can be difficult to control. They also skid on excess water and are not able to be stopped quickly. You also need to slow down and go under the speed limit. Driving too fast in wet conditions can cause you to hydroplane and slide off the road. You can control your car better when you drive at least five miles under the posted limit.

Finally, rotate your tires regularly. Rotating your tires every six months at minimum ensures an even wear and tear. Your tread lasts longer.
