What Makes Summer Driving Dangerous?

Planning a summer road trip? Be careful! Although many people don’t realize it, driving during the summer is actually more dangerous than driving during the winter.

What Makes Summer Driving Dangerous:

  • More Teenagers Driving – School is out for the summer and more teen drivers on the roads. Unfortunately, teen drivers are less experienced than older drivers, meaning a higher risk of accidents for the rest of us.
  • Tires Are Prone to Blowouts – On hot days, the air inside of your tires will expand, which can lead to a blowout in the wheels. Check your tires on a regular basis during the summer months to ensure proper air pressure.
  • There is More Construction – During the summer, there tends to be more roadside construction going on. Always be extra careful when driving through construction zones.
  • More Pedestrians and Cyclists – Warm weather means more people walking, bicycling, and driving motorcycles. Make sharing the road a priority during the summer months!
  • Engines Can Overheat – The chance of your engine overheating increases on hot days. If you notice any problems with your engine, pull over and let the engine cool down.
