Slippery When Wet | New Orleans Auto Care

If you need tire care, call the New Orleans auto care experts at Twin Tire.

The weather here in New Orleans has been hot and rainy recently and, according to the current forecast, more is on the way. Rain is a mixed blessing for drivers. Yes, it does keep the temperature down temporarily, but it also makes the roads slippery. And that can be dangerous if your car hydroplanes.

"The term hydroplaning is commonly used to refer to the skidding or sliding of a car's tires across a wet surface." safemotorist.com explains. " Hydroplaning occurs when a tire encounters more water than it can scatter. Water pressure in the front of the wheel pushes water under the tire, and the tire is then separated from the road surface by a thin film of water and loses traction. The result is loss of steering, braking and power control."

Safemotorist.com adds that there are ways to help prevent hydroplaning. Among them: slowing down when it's wet, turning off your cruise control and avoiding hard braking. But it's not just driver care that can help you avoid dangerous hydroplaning, it's also car maintenance: keeping your tires properly inflated and replacing and rotating your tires when necessary.
