Summertime is no time to relax when it comes to driving

Congratulations! You made it through another season of dangerous winter driving. However, while you no longer have to worry about snow and ice, that doesn’t mean it’s time to let your guard down in the summer sun.

Longer days and more people fleeing cabin fever can mean more vehicles on the road for a longer period, which can increase the chance of accidents. The following are some other concerns to be aware of during the summer months.

An increase in drinking and driving

Many people are apt to celebrate the warm weather with alcohol, leading to more drunk drivers on the road. In fact, July is historically the deadliest month for drunk driving accidents. Have fun, be safe, and stay away from the wheel if you have been imbibing.

Warm weather hazards

We are all aware of the weather hazards that winter brings to driving. However, hot temperatures in the summer can bring their own set of challenges. Tire blowouts are common as warm weather causes the air in tires to expand. Overheating engines are also a risk that can result in serious accidents.

While you may not have to deal with snow and ice, precipitation is still a hazard for drivers in the summer months. Thunderstorms and torrential downpours can result in slick roadways and rapid flooding. Hail and heavy winds can also lead to problems which may result in catastrophic accidents.

Don’t forget about construction zones

Summer season means it’s also construction season. Be aware of road closures, lane changes and rough roads.

Protect yourself and your loved ones

Taking precautions and keeping your attention on the road ahead can help keep you and your loved ones safe. If you unfortunately are involved in an accident with another vehicle, discuss your options with a skilled professional.
