The Danger of Aquaplaning
Ever heard of Aquaplaning?
Aquaplaning is a condition in which a vehicle loses control where the main cause is puddles of water, such as rain and flooding. Water that is too large will make it difficult for the car to move or even slip. The main cause of aquaplaning is not only rainwater puddles, but can also be caused by water from other vehicles passing by. When the car passes through a slippery road due to water, it will be dangerous if you are not careful. Car tires will be difficult to control and can result in a collision or accident.
What are the characteristics of aquaplaning?
The first characteristic that can be felt is the sudden sound of the engine sounds louder than usual. This is because the engine that is exposed to the puddle too hard will become hot enough to make a sound.
Sudden change of clutch in gears. Though, you didn't. This condition will make the speed of the vehicle becomes faster so that it is out of control. The next characteristic is, the car feels lighter. This is due to the greater water pressure that can lift and float the car.
In addition, the back of the car on the sides will feel floating. This condition is called fishtailing.
When this happens, slow down slowly and straighten the steering wheel. Do not brake suddenly, find a safe place to stop to avoid an accident.
