Avoid Accidents This Summer

A lot of people tend to drive more this summer – either to go to a vacation or to simply drive around town. Miracle Body and Paint in San Antonio Texas lists down some tips on how you can avoid auto accidents this summer season:

  • Avoid texting while driving. Not only is it against the law, it is also very unsafe and may lead to auto accidents or auto collisions.
  • If calls are unavoidable, opt to drive hands-free while on the phone. Remember that it’s against the law to use mobile phones while driving, therefore its better if you can put off any calls or texts while on the road.
  • Never drink and drive. If it’s unavoidable, make sure you get someone else who is sober to drive for you.
  • Avoid driving if sleepy. Pull over in a safe place and take a nap whenever you feel tired.
  • Avoid driving when under medication. Some medications have adverse effects on a person; it is advisable to have someone else drive for you if you’re medicated.
  • Keep your eye out for pedestrians, bicyclists, skateboarders and elderly. These people are unavoidable this summer and it will be most likely to see them everywhere. Give them the right of way at intersections, lanes and crosswalks. Slow down and maintain your patience if ever you see an elderly driver who’s driving slow as they may need more time to react.
  • Keep an eye out for motorcycles and other motorized pedestrians. Make sure the roads are clear before you attempt to change lanes. Be attentive whenever you open the door, back up or entering an intersection.
  • Clean your windows so you can have maximum visibility. Dirty windows can make it difficult to see what’s in front of you.
  • Make sure you can still see around your car. Take time to adjust side mirrors and eliminate blind spots. If you can afford it, you can consider getting a backup camera for your car.
