There are some measures that can help to avoid hydroplaning such as keeping the tires properly inflated, rotating and replacing them as needed, driving slow on wet roads, avoiding puddles and standing water, not driving in the outer lanes, turning off cruise control, driving in a lower gear, and most importantly avoiding sudden hard braking and sharp or quick turns.
