Hydroplaning Hazards

Hydroplaning takes place when the amount of road moisture is greater than a vehicle is able to disperse. The extensive amount of water prevents traction between the tires and the road, which leads to an inability to handle the vehicle and subsequent gliding. The situation is dangerous and frightful. However, there are ways to deal with the problem.

When roadways are wet or when approaching areas of water accumulation, disengage the cruise control and slow the vehicle down in advance. Resist the urge to pass other vehicles. Do not drive on tires having insufficient tread. Monitor the condition of your tires. Replace, balance or rotate tires regularly as needed. At Penske Ford, our technicians are ready to help with all of your vehicle needs, which includes providing tire maintenance and replacement. Trust our Penske Ford service center in La Mesa‘s team of qualified staff to keep you and your vehicle safe on the road.
