Safe Speed Prevents Hydroplaning

When it comes to hydroplaning, you want to consider safety first! Once hydroplaning begins, it’s very difficult to stop it. However, you can take measures into your own hands to prevent it!

Always maintain a reasonable level of speed based on the weather conditions and even consider reducing your speed below the posted limit by at least 5 to 10 mph when it's raining. Pay close attention to the road signs in Alexandria to know what to expect, such as “slippery when wet” or “curve ahead.” During rainy weather conditions, road signs become crucial to your safety and for preventing hydroplaning. Speed is the number one factor that contributes to hydroplaning.

Be sure to also schedule enough time for getting to your destination in order to avoid the temptation of increasing your speed.
