Hydroplaning is a dangerous situation to find yourself in while driving. It can happen when you least expect it and lead to you to skidding off the road, rolling over, or crashing into something or someone else.

Preventing hydroplaning calls for close attention to your vehicle. These tips can prevent you from hydroplaning when driving in wet weather.

If possible, you should drive in low gear to prevent your car from going into a hydroplane. Low gear makes your car easier to control. It also ensures you go at a low enough speed to stop if necessary.

Also, avoid using cruise control if you are driving on wet roads. Cruise control prevents your car from slowing down or adjusting to the conditions of the road. Even if you brake to turn off the cruise control, you could still send your car into a hydroplane. Turn the cruise control off to be safe.
