With the prospect of a heavy rainy season ahead, hydroplaning
in your vehicle becomes more likely and dangerous. Even with a thin layer of water
on the road, your vehicle speed and tire tread depth will have
a significant impact on control or lack thereof.
THIS IS A DIRECT RESULT OF A HYDROPLANE ACCIDENT
With good tire tread depth, and a cautious speed, the tire tread
pattern will push the water out and away from the wheel allowing
for maximum contact with the road. However, regardless of how
good or new the tires are, the faster the speed the less direct
contact with the road. A layer of water builds up between the
rubber and the road resulting in Hydroplaning and loss of control.
Prescription: Don't drive if you don't have to
Have your Tires Checked for Tread Depth & Air Pressure
Slowwww Dowwwwn, allow extra space between you
and the car in front
