You were headed home from Boogie Wonderland when it happened. You turned a corner and your car’s back end skidded sideways. You managed to regain control of your car and nothing bad happened, but it was still a scary moment because it was so unexpected.
Skidding – hydroplaning when it happens on wet roads – is a loss of traction generally caused by one or more of three factors, lewiscountydrivingschool.com says. Those are the condition of the road, driver actions and the condition of the vehicle, mainly your tires and brakes.
Lewiscountydrivingschool.com says, “Brakes should be evenly adjusted so that on application of the brakes the vehicle slows down in a straight line. If the brakes pull one way or the other, a skid can easily occur. Front wheels being out of alignment also can cause a skid by pulling the vehicle one way or another when the brake are applied.
“Tires should have good tread, and preferably the front and rear pairs should be well matched, and the tire pressure should be correct. If there is a different pressure in one tire from that in the opposite one, the effect can be similar to that of unevenly adjusted brakes because one tire will drag more than the other tires.”
It adds, “To prevent hydroplaning, it is most helpful to have properly inflated good tires with deep tread, at least 1/8 inch. The tread allows the water to escape from under the tires and tends to prevent complete hydroplaning at normal highway speeds. ”
