?Hydroplaning isn't a pleasant event. Truck Town wants drivers to be informed on safe driving matters. That's why we have put together some tips that could help you avoid hydroplaning in bad weather.

Hydroplaning is when your car loses traction on a slick surface, leaving you with no steering or control. In bad weather try to plan routes that will be less susceptible to standing water. You can also stick to driving in the inner lanes. Runoff tends to accumulate on the edges of a roadway near the outer lanes.

Finally, slow your speed. You will be less likely to hydroplane at slower speeds, and you can also react more quickly to the actions of your fellow drivers.
