Hydroplaning can be a scary situation for any driver in Cicero, NY. These tips from Burdick BMW can help you stay safe when you are driving on a wet surface.

A very important tip is to make sure your tires are maintained. You should check the pressure regularly to keep it at the recommended levels. Tires that have too much, or too little air are subject to hydroplaning. Also, the tread on your tires will wear over time. The old penny test is still a good way to make sure your tires have enough tread. If not, consider having them replaced.

Nothing beats slowing down to prevent hydroplaning. When the roadway is wet, reduce your speed. Getting to your destination a little bit later beats having an accident. Try to avoid areas of the roadway where water is prone to stand. That usually means staying in the inside lanes whenever possible.
