Summer driving conditions are worse than winter

Summer driving conditions like this cause automobile injury accidents  that are treated at TBC Accident Care in Oklahoma City,OK.Winter is over, summer is here, so driving conditions are safe now, right? Not only is this wrong, it’s the exact opposite. Now that summer has arrived, the dangers of the road can be even more serious. You may be surprised to learn how.

Letting down your guard

During the summer months, people assume the roads are fine and their driving is safe. Because of this, their minds start to relax and their driving gets faster and more reckless. The possible consequences of that mentality are dire.

More vacationers, more traffic

As larger amounts of people start travel around the same time, the roads become congested quickly. This crowding puts you and your passengers in a less safe environment that is more prone to wrecks. Be aware of this at all times.

Blown tires

If your wheels are getting older, the summer heat can cause the air in them to expand. When this happens, possible blowouts will linger at your heels. This is an unpleasant and dangerous condition to occur on vacation. Inspect your tires to make sure it doesn’t.

Teenage wasteland

Schools out, and so are the teens. After the final bell has rung, large numbers of teenagers will hit the roads. This younger demographic is the worst of all drivers, so be careful of all vehicles around you.

Hi Linda,I just found your site, but I wish I'd found it sooner when I was still in Paris. We lived near the Bastille. I wakeld through rue Lappe to get to the Marais often. I saw those plastic chandeliers near the Place Vendome my last day walking in Paris. I miss Paris, so will have to come check out your blog more after this.
