Summer Safety on the Road
As the temperature rises, so do the number of accidents and trips to the emergency room. Make a commitment to yourself and your family to make safety a priority this summer. Bicycle rides, road trips, and holiday parties should be fun and a time to make memories. Follow these summer safety tips and tricks by Accident Recovery Team to avoid accidents, costly consequences and a less-than-awesome summer.
Summer Safety on Two Wheels
Summer is the perfect time to dust off the bike and get the family cruising around the neighborhood. Before hitting the streets, the first summer safety tip is to be sure everyone’s bicycles are in tip-top shape. While out riding, follow all traffic laws and wear bright and reflective colors so drivers can see you. When in traffic, be aware of vehicles as well as pedestrians and road hazards such as potholes and grates. If in a bicycle accident, it’s important to reach out to a personal injury attorney. Time is critical to make sure you receive the compensation you or your loved one is entitled to collect.
A Road Trip to Remember
Piled in the minivan with the kids. Riding solo on the back of a motorcycle. Regardless of how you travel, a hospital visit should not be on your road trip itinerary. Promote summer safety by committing to stay safe on the road this summer. Keep distractions to a minimum. Pull over when you start to feel sleepy at the wheel. Watch the weather and take shelter from storms instead of driving through them. But accidents happen so if you are in a wreck, it’s important to know what to do next. Accident Recovery Team can help you get back on the road quickly and with the compensation you deserve.
Don’t Receive a Party Foul
Summer is prime time to enjoy a few drinks at an outdoor barbecue with family and friends. Practice summer safety by planning ahead to ensure everyone makes it home at the end of the night. Now more than ever, there are a lot of options for getting home safely after a night out. Uber and other ride sharing services make it easy to catch a ride. Coordinate with a friend or partner to take turns being the designated driver. Walk home, crash on the couch, call your mom, etc. Just do whatever necessary to avoid drinking and driving. Protect yourself and everyone else on the road. Don’t drive drunk.
