Safety Tips for Summer Driving

By: Markee Bittner / May 30, 2018

Summer is almost here and according to the Department of Transportation, it is surprisingly the most dangerous and deadliest driving season. A little preparation for a road trip can go a long way.

Check for recalls

Check your vehicle for any recalls it may have. It is also a good time to get your car serviced. Oil changes, checking your tire pressure, battery checks or any other fine tune ups can prevent you from being stuck on the side of the road.

Car Seat Safety

For those of you who are traveling with children, make sure they are in the correct car seat for their weight/height. Educating yourself on car seats can prevent devastating outcomes. Go to https://csftl.org/ for some great information on the best and safest car seat practices.

Weather Check

Before traveling, check the weather for any thunder, hail or rain storms you may be driving through. Pull over in a designated highway pull off spot if the rain is coming down too hard to see the vehicles in front of you. Also, use your four way lights if you are driving below the speed limit during a rain storm

Pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists oh my!

Watch out for all of the above. With warm weather, comes more people taking walks, bicyclists and a lot more motorcycles out on the roads.

Construction

Summer months are custom for road work. Be extra cautious when it comes to driving through construction. By following the work zone speed limit and paying attention to the road in front of you, you can not only save your own life but others’ as well.
