Tips For Avoiding Summer Driving Accidents

Published on July 26th, 2019

Summer is a time for increased travel, which in turn increases the potential for car accidents. Keep you and your family safe this summer by implementing the below tips on how to avoid hazards on the road. If you have been in a wreck our motor vehicle accident lawyers in Joliet at Block Law can help you. 

Stay Up to Date with Maintenance

Regular auto maintenance is important for your vehicle; if your vehicle is not properly maintained it can lead to motor accidents. Ensure that your tire pressure is in check and that all fluid levels in your vehicle are good before you hit the road this summer. 

Share the Road

When the temperatures change, more pedestrians are usually out. Be sure to share the road safely with any bike riders or any other electric vehicles. With the newest arrival of electric scooters in Chicago, it is important to always double-check your blind spots before making a turn or lane change.

Stay Alert 

Staying alert is important year-round, but especially important in the summer months. Increased traffic and pedestrians can lead to more unexpected accidents. Always keep in mind that a pedestrian can cross the street at any point. Stay off of electronic devices and keep your eyes on the road to avoid accidents.
