How to Drive Safely in the Spring

Get Ready to Drive during the Wet Season

As you probably know, the spring season is the wet season in many states. After all, plants and flowers need water to be reborn. What you don't need while driving, however, is poor visibility, slippery roads, and other dangerous conditions. To stay safe even if it's pouring outside, you should read and follow the rainy driving tips here:
  • Firstly, you will need to allow more space between your vehicle and the objects and vehicles nearby. This way, you will have more time to stop in case the roads are really slippery.
  • You won't be able to stop safely during the rain if your tires aren't in great condition. Check them often to see if they're in good condition. If they aren't, get them fixed or replaced.
  • Stopping and slowing down on a slippery road will also be made more difficult if your brakes are not working properly. Inspect them every so often to keep them in top shape.
  • Of course, visibility is of the utmost importance when driving. Since the days are darker, check that your lights (blinkers, headlights, hazards) are working as expected.
  • To be able to see the road ahead, you will also need wipers in good shape. They can wear down fairly quickly, so check them and, if needed, replace them.
  • Your vehicle will need to have a functional battery in order to power the functionalities mentioned above. Have it checked on a regular basis.

Make sure your vehicle remains in mint condition with the continued use of high-quality products, like AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the top-performing synthetic oil in Clintonville.

Prepare to Drive Under the Blazing Sun

After the cold, chilly winds of the winter months, the spring season brings some relief with higher temperatures. And while this can be a great thing, if you're driving around, you need to be aware of the dangers of driving when it's sunny out. For instance, if it was snowing, the snow will melt and make the roads slippery. Read to learn how to face this and other challenges of sunny driving:
  • As mentioned above, if you want to brake, swerve, and drive safely, if the snow is melting and the roads are slippery, you have to keep a greater distance from other drivers.
  • Even if the roads were in perfect condition, you would still need functioning brakes to slow down or stop completely when you're driving. Check and replace its braking fluid.
  • The temperatures will increase, and the sun will shine down on your vehicle. To make sure your engine won't overheat and shut down on you because of the intense temperatures, maintain the cooling system perfectly with regular coolant replacements.
  • The sunshine can be a great thing, but it can also be very damaging. For example, on your vehicle, it can eat away at its interiors, appearance, and components. To reduce some of the negative effects, employ sunshades whenever you can.
  • Lastly, the sun can also be damaging to your skin. To help you avoid any of the health problems that prolonged sun exposure can cause when you're on the road, wear sunglasses, driving gloves, and most importantly of all, sunscreen.
