Be aware of cyclists and pedestrians:
With the warmer weather, more cyclists and pedestrians will likely be out and about. Keep an eye out for them and give them plenty of space when passing.
Check your brakes:
After a long winter, your brakes may need to be checked to ensure they work properly. Have them inspected by a professional if you are unsure.
Be prepared for changing weather conditions:
Spring weather can be unpredictable, so make sure you are prepared for sudden changes in temperature or precipitation. Keep an emergency kit in your car, including items like blankets, a flashlight, and non-perishable food.
Adjust your driving for wet roads:
Spring showers can make roads slick, so slow down and leave extra space between yourself and other vehicles. Avoid sudden braking or acceleration, and use your headlights to improve visibility.
