Its 4th of July weekend and this means extra fun, but also extra awareness needed on the road. The roads will be extremely busy, so while you are driving make sure your focus is only on the road, and nothing else. Avoid distractions such as texting, fiddling with the radio, talking on your cell phone, or anything that could cause your reaction on the road to be slower. Here are a few more tips to make sure you have a safe weekend.
Watch your speed. State and local police officers will be out in full force during the 4th of July week. So watch the local speed limits and keep a safe distance from the cars in front of you. Buckle Up. Wearing seatbelts every time you drive is the easiest way to help keep you and your family safe in the event of an accident. If you are going on a longer trip, Check your tires. The last thing you want is a blowout while on the highway. Check your tire pressure before you leave for a road trip. Low tire levels can potentially reduce fuel efficiency, as well as being a safety issue.
