How You Can Stay Safe on the Road This Summer

August 5th, 2019 by

Still have one last adventure planned this summer? Check out all of our great road trip vehicles here at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep®, where you’re sure to find a vehicle that’s perfect for you and your family’s lifestyle. To ensure you’re prepared to handle anything thrown your way on your next trip, check out our quick and easy tips for avoiding common road hazards.

One of the most common hazards you’ll encounter on the road is a distracted driver. Whether they’re texting while driving, inebriated, or downright reckless, unpredictable drivers create problems for everyone, so it’s important to stay as far away from them as possible. If you spot a reckless driver, slow down and keep your distance. Active safety features like forward collision warning and adaptive cruise control come in handy if you ever cross paths with a chaotic driver, and you can easily find them in vehicles like the 2019 RAM 1500.

No one likes driving in the rain, especially your vehicle. If you find yourself caught in a downpour on your next road trip, decrease your speed and create ample space between you and the car in front of you, in case you need to suddenly brake. Turn on your headlights if visibility isn’t clear, and if you find yourself unable to see, don’t hesitate to pull over and wait for the weather to ease up. If your vehicle comes with four-wheel drive, you have a better chance of gripping the road in slippery conditions.

No matter what type of road hazard you face, it’s always wise to take it slow. All of us here at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep want you to be safe out there, so to prepare your vehicle for the road, stop by our Glenbrook, IL service center so we can get your car running in peak condition.
