Have you ever hydroplaned while driving? It's not a fun experience. For a few seconds, you don't have control over where your car goes, and those few seconds can lead to an accident. But you can take some precautions to lessen the likelihood that you'll hydroplane when you're out in a rain storm. At MINI of Portland, we're happy to give you a couple of the most important tips.

Keeping your tires inflated is one of the most important things that you can do to give yourself optimal control over your vehicle at any time, but this is especially true when you're in a rain storm. Tires are designed to displace water the best when they're properly inflated.

Another tip is to drive a little more slowly when it starts to rain. If the rain just started, you might think that you're okay, but the oil on the road actually makes the road even more slippery.
