You know that you need to slow down when you're driving in snow and ice, but did you know that the same thing is true when you're driving in rain? When there's water on the road, you're at increased risk of slipping and hydroplaning because it's more difficult for your tires to get a grip on the road. But there are some things that you can do to increase your safety by reducing the likelihood that you'll hydroplane.

First of all, slow down so that your tires can displace the water. The faster that you drive, the more water that your tires have to displace per second.

You can also make sure that your tires are up for the challenge of gripping the road in less than ideal circumstances. Make sure that your tires are inflated to the correct psi. And also make sure that your tires have a good tread, which will further help them displace water.
