How to avoid aquaplanning

Often with Autumn comes the wet weather (not that we didn’t have our fair share this summer). There is always the danger of aquaplaning when the roads get wet.

Here are some tips on how to avoid doing that.

⦁ Plan your journey ahead of time. Keep your eye on warnings for poor conditions

⦁ Keep your driving smooth and steady - avoid harsh braking and hard cornering.

⦁ Regularly check your tyres making sure that they're inflated to the correct pressure.

⦁ Consider changing tyres before they reach the legal minimum depth

⦁ Remember water is usually shallower at the centre of the road

⦁ Avoid driving in any ruts in the road caused by heavy goods vehicles.
