WAYS TO AVOID HYDROPLANING

March 31st, 2018 by

If you find yourself losing control over your car when there is a lot of water on the road, this means that you are hydroplaning. It happens when too much water gets between your tire and the road. One of the best ways you can get through it without harming yourself or other drivers is to relax and keep your car going in a straight line. Slamming on the brakes is not the answer.

Unfortunately, hydroplaning can happen to even careful drivers. If you are watching the cars in front of you, you will be able to tell if they lose control before you do. Prudent drivers take the time to have their tires serviced regularly. This includes checking the tread levels, inflating them properly and getting them rotated.

Visit our service center at Tulley BMW of Manchester in Manchester, NH to have your tires checked, rotated, inflated, patched or replaced if necessary.
