Hydroplaning is a general term used to describe when a vehicle is sliding across a wet road or surface. This usually occurs when the vehicle's tires cannot get grip on the surface, and it can lead to you losing control of the vehicle.

Hydroplaning can be scary, but you can take steps to avoid it. The first way to avoid hydroplaning is to rotate and replace your tires regularly. Waiting till your tires are bald can be a major contributing factor to hydroplaning. Another way to avoid hydroplaning is to make smooth inputs when driving. Avoid extreme acceleration or braking during or after a heavy storm.
