Spring Driving Hazards to Look Out For

Spring Driving Hazards to Look Out For

How to handle seasonal hazards on the road during spring.

Driving in the winter can be stressful. So, when signs of spring start to appear and the weather gets warmer, drivers start to let their guard down. However, driving in spring can be just as dangerous as driving in the winter. Drivers should be especially alert behind the wheel during springtime and watch out for these road hazards.

  • Construction

Spring is one of the busiest seasons for road construction to repair winter damage, such as potholes and cracks in the road. Be aware of traffic conditions and work zones, and slow down when passing these areas. It’s wise to look ahead at traffic reports to avoid construction on your commute.

  • Weather

Spring showers can lead to hazardous downpour. Be mindful of the weather reports before you set off on a long journey. If you are caught in an unexpected storm, find a safe place to park and wait it out until the conditions improve.

  • Animals

Warm weather brings wildlife out of hibernation and in search of food. Slow down and stay alert, especially in rural areas where wildlife is common. Animals may appear suddenly near the roadways so always be prepared to stop safely to save the animal and your car from damage.

  • Pedestrians

More people, children, and dogs are out and about in the spring to make the most of the warmer weather. Keep an eye out for dog walkers, children playing, and people running. Remember that even if you see them, they may not see you.

Along with driving safely on spring roads, you’ll want to secure the right auto insurance. To get started on a tailored policy, contact Lloyd S. Berkett Insurance Agency today.
