You're driving along in a rainstorm when you suddenly feel yourself lose control of the vehicle after driving through a puddle. You're hydroplaning. What do you do? Well, if you take a few precautions, you won't find yourself in this predicament, and at Stoltz Family Dealerships in DuBois, PA, we would like to give you a couple of the best tips.

First of all, make sure that your tires have good tread and are inflated properly. The tread on the tire helps displace water quickly, which keeps your tires in contact with the road so that you don't hydroplane. But the tread works best when the tires are inflated properly. If they're overinflated, there's less surface area that's in contact with the road, but if they're underinflated, you lose the ability to maneuver quickly.

Another tip is to avoid hard braking or sudden turns, which can further cause you to lose control over the vehicle. Just like on any slippery surface, any sudden moves can cause you to struggle.
