From long drives with the top down and running more errands to taking a trip with friends or family, there are a lot of great reasons to get behind the wheel this summer. However, it’s important to protect you and your family from summertime driving hazards that may pose a threat to your safety on the road.
Read below to learn about common summertime driving hazards and how you can safeguard your physical well-being — as well as your financial health — while driving this season.
Tire Flats & Blowouts
As temperatures rise in the warmer months, the air in your car tires expands. This increases the likelihood of tire flats and blowouts which can lead to car accidents and other dangerous situations.
Sharing the Road
More people ride their bicycles and motorcycles during the summer so always check your blind spots when changing lanes, making turns or going into or out of parking spots.
An increase in construction during the summer means that drivers will likely encounter more roadblocks, detours and frustrating traffic jams. Avoid distractions, speeding and tailgating in order to ensure work zone safety this summer.
Summer storms can create dangerous driving conditions very quickly with heavy rainfall and strong winds. Use extreme caution if you find yourself driving on slick, slippery roads cluttered with debris.
