What should you do if you aquaplane?

If you aquaplane, the best course of action is to do as little as possible. Do not turn the wheel suddenly, do not accelerate, do not brake. Keep the front wheels in the direction they were before they began to aquaplane and be prepared for the moment the tyres regain traction.

Factors that increase the risk of aquaplaning:

  • High speed
  • Deep pools of water
  • Wide tyres
  • Worn tyres
  • Lightly loaded wheels
  • Ruts in the road
