Safety tips for sharing the road this summer 

As seasons change, so do road conditions ⁠— winter snow brings on slick roads and spring rain brings on visibility challenges. Although summer weather can create clearer road conditions, there are other obstacles to keep in mind.

Higher temps lead to more motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians on the road. To preserve your safety as a motorist and keep an eye out for your surroundings, it’s important to put some thought into your route ahead of short or long drives and stay focused while cruising along.

Plan ahead

Not only will you be sharing the road with all kinds of commuters, but you will also drive through more construction sites this summer. Taking the time to keep track of any road closures before leaving home can serve as a reminder to slow down as you approach construction zones and workers.

Another precaution you should take to help protect yourself and keep the flow of traffic steady, is to closely monitor your tires. During warmer months, the combination of low air pressure in car tires and outdoor heat can lead to a tire blowout in the middle of your drive.

Turn down distractions

If blind spots can affect your view of other vehicles, then you also run the risk of not spotting a biker or pedestrian if you aren’t looking properly. One way to make sure you are both using your mirrors and turning your head as you make lane changes and turns, is to tone down other potential distractions.

For example, turning up your music and rolling down your windows to feel the summer breeze may be tempting, but the reality is this type of behavior can be distracting. Although studies show music can help reduce stress behind the wheel, it’s crucial to find a balance between your ideal driving preferences and safe driving practices.

Unfortunately, safe drivers still fall victim to car accidents. If you or a loved is suffering serious injuries as a result of a car crash, a dedicated personal injury attorney can be your guide in navigating the aftermath.
