4 Driving Tips To Prevent a Connecticut Auto Accident During Summer
Many people think winter is the most dangerous for motorists because of snowy and icy roads and low visibility. Summertime, however, can give you an easy, laid back feeling, but it is the most dangerous time to operate a vehicle. Avoid a Connecticut auto accident during the summer months by following the tips below.
- Summer weather brings unexpected rain storms, thunder, lightening, and hail that reduces visibility while driving and can make road conditions dangerous. Extreme heat can also cause engines to overheat.
- Warm weather means people are out and about enjoying it. That means more motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians will be sharing the road.
- More teenage drivers will be on the roadways. Teen drivers are inexperienced and are at an increased risk for an accident. Stay alert.
- Summer months are prime time for roadway construction. When traveling through work zones make sure you are cautious as not to injure another motorist, worker, or yourself.
