Traffic Advisory for the Week of September 11 - September 17September 8, 2023
Road Safety Reminder for the week of September 11 - 17, 2023
Hydroplaning occurs when driving in wet or rainy conditions. Hydroplaning is a vehicle riding on water because the tires lose all contact with the road. A slight change of direction, applying the brakes, or a gust of wind could throw the vehicle into a skid.
To avoid hydroplaning:
- Drive slowly.
- Steer around standing water, if possible.
- Slow down if you hear sloshing sounds from the tires.
- Slow down when changing lanes or direction.
If your vehicle starts to hydroplane:
- Slow down gradually.
- Do not use the brakes. Sudden braking may cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
