Road hazards will pop up when you least expect them, so no matter how much driving experience you have, it’s important to be prepared at all times. To eliminate unexpected damage and protect yourself and your passengers, our staff here at Mann Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM came up with some of the best road safety tips for when you’re faced with a hazard.
Work Zone Hazards – Countless accidents happen every year due to carelessness near work zones, especially in the summer when construction is common. You should always stick to the speed limit posted near a work zone and have your full attention on the road.
Large Trucks – It’s important to remember that you share the road with other vehicles, including large trucks with blind spots that don’t always detect small cars. Use caution when driving your 2019 Dodge Charger near large trucks so you don’t get lost in their blind spots. To protect yourself, drive directly in front of or behind a large truck so it can see you.
Cyclists – If you live in a metropolitan area, you’re probably used to seeing cyclists driving next to you on the road, especially when the weather is nice. Make sure you stay alert when driving next to a cyclist and keep your eyes on your surroundings, particularly near public parks and residential neighborhoods. Allow cyclists plenty of room when you’re driving on a narrow street.
