At Southern Pines Pre-Owned Superstore customer safety and satisfaction is at the top of our priority. This is why we have provided information on tips on how to avoid hydroplaning on the roads in and around Southern Pines, NC.

Hydroplaning happens tires in a vehicle encounter more water than they can disperse. The film of water that accumulates under the tires causes the tires to lose contact with the road. This is what creates the feeling of the vehicle slipping out of control and the loss of steering.

There are many things you can to avoid hydroplaning. Make sure that your tires are inflated properly and that you rotate and replace them as needed. When you are turning, make sure you turn slowly. The same approach should apply when braking. Brake slowly when conditions are wet and slick. You should also try to drive where there is less water and behind the tracks of the vehicle in front of you.
