Spring Driving Challenges

Spring driving brings its own set of challenges and considerations due to changing weather conditions and road hazards. Here are some tips for safe spring driving:

  • Watch for Potholes: Winter weather can cause potholes to form on roads. Be vigilant, especially after thawing occurs, as these potholes can damage your vehicle or cause accidents.
  • Be Aware of Wet Roads: Spring often brings rain showers, which can make roads slippery. Reduce your speed and increase your following distance to maintain control of your vehicle in wet conditions.
  • Check Tire Pressure: Fluctuating temperatures can affect tire pressure. Make sure your tires are properly inflated to ensure optimal traction and handling.
  • Replace Worn Wiper Blades: Spring showers mean you’ll be using your windshield wipers more frequently. Replace worn wiper blades to ensure clear visibility during rain showers.
  • Beware of Fog: Spring mornings can bring foggy conditions, which reduce visibility. Use your low beam headlights and fog lights if necessary, and reduce your speed to safely navigate through foggy areas.
  • Watch for Pedestrians and Cyclists: With warmer weather, more pedestrians and cyclists are out and about. Stay alert and watch for pedestrians and cyclists.

By following these tips, you can stay safe and prepared while driving during the spring season.
