Spring driving dangers to protect against

When driving during the spring months, there are a variety of challenges that could stand in between you and safely reaching your destination.

Although you can't prepare for everything, here are some of the things you should be thinking about:

  • Rain: If it begins to rain, adjust your driving style to account for slick roads and impaired visibility. In the event of a severe storm that limits your ability to drive safely, pull to the side of the road or a parking lot until conditions improve.
  • Wind: Strong winds make it difficult to maintain control of your vehicle. Slowing down will give you additional stability. Make special note of high profile vehicles, such as buses and commercial trucks, that are driving in close proximity. These vehicles are more likely to be blown all over the road.
  • Bicyclists and pedestrians: As the weather warms, more people take to the road. For example, in a city setting, you can expect to come across more bicyclists and pedestrians. These people enjoy spending time outdoors, and now that the weather has changed they'll do so as often as possible.

Even if you protect against these spring driving dangers, you're unsure if everyone else on the road will take the same approach. There are always people who think that nothing bad can happen to them.

If a negligent driver causes an accident, pull to safety, check yourself and passengers for injuries and call 911 to request help (if police aren't already on the scene). Taking these steps will lead you to receive appropriate medical treatment and will help protect your legal rights.
