Summer Driving Hazards

By June 21, 2019News

Summer is here. The ice has melted and no more spring floods.

You’re ready to hit the road!

Or are you?

Before you leave on your annual road trip, it’s important to know what summer driving dangers there are and how to protect yourself.

Tire blowouts

The hot weather causes the air inside your tires to expand, which may result in a blowout in older wheels. Check your tires regularly, especially during a heat wave, to avoid a blowout.

Increased road congestion

You’re not the only one who wants to take a driving vacation. There will be more drivers on the road during the summer months, which could lead to congestion and difficult driving conditions. Be aware of your surroundings and give yourself enough time to get from Point A to Point B.

More teen drivers

We’ve all been there. A new adolescent driver with a fresh license, a car and plenty of free time. Unfortunately, inexperienced teen drivers can create an increased risk for accidents. So when you’re driving, pay attention to other drivers (teens included), so you arrive at your destination safely.

When you know what driving dangers are out there, you can keep yourself safe and enjoy summer road trips.
