If you've ever had it happen to you, then you know that hydroplaning in your vehicle can be a scary experience. For a few seconds, your tires aren't touching the road, and you lose control of the car, but there are some things that you can do to prevent this experience. At Wynne Volvo Cars of Hampton in Hampton, VA, we know that you want to stay safe, and we want to help you.

One of the best things that you can do is make sure that you have a set of quality tires with full tread. The treads on a good set of tires are designed to displace water, and if your tires are bald, you're more likely to hydroplane.

Another tip is to slow down when you're driving through puddles. That faster you're driving, the less weight that's pushing down on the road per square inch, so your vehicle will have more difficulties gaining traction on the road.
