There are three main factors that contribute to aquaplaning:
The speed. As speed increases
the tension decreases to the point where we completely loss traction and
the car control.
The tires. As the tires
get worn, they will lose their ability to resist aquaplaning.
Water depth. The deeper
the water depth, the faster you lose traction.
If it rains or if the pavement is still wet, the driver must:
• Reduce speed, adapting it to the slippery conditions
• Keep a safe distance from the vehicle ahead
• Provide a greater stopping distance (the braking distance increases
by approximately 50%)
• Avoid sudden acceleration and braking
• If your car slips, remember not to hit the brakes. Instead, make
a constant braking and turn the steering wheel in the direction of the
