Summer Safety Driving Tips

During the hot summer season, many are heading to the shore for some relaxation time.  However, hitting crowded traffic and frustrated drivers is unavoidable.  Even if you are just going for a drive to visit family for a BBQ, keep in mind, there is still danger involved with driving.  Here are some tips from AJM Insurance to remind you to take a deep breath and relax the next time you pack up for a day at the beach.  Summer has just begun, so please drive safe and read these reminders and tips!

  • Plan ahead by mapping out the best route, and check traffic conditions before heading out. A website that may help you with directions is Mapquest .
  • Turn off all distracting electronic devices such as cell phones, as to not be distracted while driving. 
  • If you need to send a text message, take or even make a phone call, pull over to a safe place before hand.
  • Before leaving, buckle in children and keep them happy with snacks and entertainment. 
  • Make sure to eat a sensible meal before leaving, as this will increase your attention and mood during the drive.
  • Do an overview of your car before you pull out of the driveway: Check the air in the tires, the oil of the car, even adjust your seat to make sure you are prepared and are ready for a relaxing, comfortable drive.
  • Put on makeup, fix hair, and dress appropriately before leaving the house- so you don’t have to do it while driving!
  • Put your full attention into driving! Scan the road, observe any possible hazards or obstructions, and keep yourself focused on getting to your destination safely!
  • Drive slowly around construction areas to avoid accidents
  • Watch for potholes and uneven pavement, as they can wreak havoc on your tires!
  • Drive slow! Studies show that speeds over 60 mph greatly decreases gas conservation.
  • During rain, even if it is at night, wear sunglasses to prevent glare and increase visibility and reduce glare. 
  • Also, never cruise control when it is raining, as you can hydroplane and lose control of your car. Check these Rainy Driving Tips in case of inclimate weather.
  • Evaluate your own driving to make sure you aren’t the one being unsafe!
  • Enlist the help of friends and family on your journey to help with maps, directions, or finding something you need in the vehicle.  The more the merrier, right? Click here for more in depth summer advice!
