The road can get slippery when it starts to rain. When the water begins to mix with oil on the road, you can find that it becomes difficult to drive safely. In order to avoid hydroplaning as much as possible, it's important to have your tires checked regularly by our service center at Sterling Kia of Lafayette.

Proper inflation is necessary, and enough tread to grip the road helps prevent hydroplaning. When you drive too fast in the rain, your car can hydroplane because it can't displace the water between the tires and road fast enough.

If you find yourself slipping when the roads are wet, slow down your vehicle. Give yourself enough distance between yourself and the car in front of you. Pay attention to speed limits, and drive between 5 to 10 miles an hour below the speed limit. Take your time, and don't try to take corners too sharply in the rain.
