Hydroplaning can be a scary driving experience. You could lose control of your braking, steering, and ability to come to a stop. This process happens during times of heavy rain when more water builds up around your tires than your car is able to push out of the way.

There are some actions that you can take in order to prevent your car from hydroplaning. Slow down and drive under the speed limit during heavy rain. Measure your tire tread once every month, and get your tires replaced if the tread does not pass the "penny test."
