At Cutter Volvo Cars we want drivers to be aware of hydroplaning and how to avoid it. You may be able to minimize your risk of hydroplaning if you take a few simple precautions. Planning ahead could even save your life or the lives of those you love.

When a car hydroplanes on a wet surface there is a loss of steering and braking is ineffective. To avoid hydroplaning, always reduce your speed in bad weather. Getting to your destination a little late is better than never arriving at all. You should also drive in a lower gear, and be sure to stay clear of outer lanes where water is prone to stand.

Your safety matters to us. We invite you down to our dealership here in Waipahu, HI where you can schedule tire rotations and replacement. Keeping your tires in good shape is another way to help prevent hydroplaning in wet weather.
