How to Prevent Hydroplaning with Szott Ford

Hydroplaning can be a scary event, especially if it happens on a busy road or at a high rate of speed. When water gets between your tires and the road, this is hydroplaning. It could cause you to lose braking, steering and traction.

Driving too fast on a wet road is a leading cause of hydroplaning. Slowing down by 5 to 10 miles per hour under the speed limit lowers your risk. Low tire tread also increases hydroplaning. Replacing worn-out tires with high-quality tires with a deep tread will also reduce hydroplaning.
