Large puddles can cause your vehicle to hydroplane. This can happen if your vehicle drives over water and skids on top of the water, causing you to lose control. If your car does hydroplane, gently ease your foot off the accelerator to avoid losing control. Give your Vehicle a Spring Tune-Up. Check things like your fluid levels, brakes and wiper blades to make sure everything is in good order. Many garages have affordable spring tune up packages if you are not mechanically inclined.
