Summer Safe Driving Tips

- By: Karlos Finley Date : May 22, 2011

July and August are the two worst months of the year for motor vehicle collisions. Many of these collisions can be avoided. Please keep in mind the following safe driving tips during the summer months.  

Watch out for children: When driving in neighborhoods and especially when backing your vehicle. Check brakes, headlights and brake lights, signals, tires, oil and other fluids before starting any long trip. Plan your trip in advance using maps and/or online mapping services. Be patient and follow and obey the rules of the road. Be a defensive driver and a cooperative driver with others on the roadway. Use caution around 18-wheelers and remember to avoid their blind spots. Limit cell phone use while driving and DO NOT TRY TO TEXT AND DRIVE! Turn on headlights in rain or bad weather. STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR DRIVING. Avoid or limit in car distractions. USE SEATBELTS and make sure car seats and booster seats for children are installed properly and used while the vehicle is operating.


Have a safe and enjoyable summer. Drive carefully!
