Getting ready to drive in the upcoming spring months will help you have safer and more enjoyable rides. Learn tips and tricks for spring driving through this post that John O Brown in Show Low has prepared for you.

When you think about a season of the year that can have harsh driving conditions, you probably think of the winter. The days are shorter and darker, there can be snow on the ground, and around the holidays, the traffic on the roads increases significantly. Even if that's the case, you should understand that driving during the spring months has its fair share of challenges. For that reason, you should take your vehicle to a mechanic who can ensure your vehicle is ready for them. Other than that, you should read the post below to learn the tips you should follow to drive around safely during the spring months.

How to Drive Safely in the Spring

Prepare for the Rainy Season

The flowers start blossoming, and the trees start to grow green leaves again during the springtime because it begins to rain. And while rain is a sign that the cycle has begun once more, it can make driving more difficult: poor visibility, slippery roads, and more. Take into consideration the tips below to drive safely in the rain:
  • The first tip is to get more space between your vehicle and the other vehicles, objects, people, or animals around you. This will give your tires a better chance to stop completely, even if the roads are slippery and more challenging.
  • Speaking of which, you will have to inspect the tires and brakes to ensure you will be able to drive your vehicle safely, even if it's raining. Verify that they're in good condition. If they aren't, get them fixed or replace them.
  • You can't use your vehicle if your battery is dead. Furthermore, you need a working battery to power the lights, turn the wipers on, and employ the 'defrost' option, so make sure it works.
  • The battery isn't the only thing you will need to see and be seen on a rainy day. You will also have to check the lights (the headlights, the blinkers, the hazards, and others).
  • Finally, if the sky is pouring down on you, you will need to clear the water from your windshield to see well. Make sure your wipers are in good shape to that end.

Maintaining your engine properly is key to drive safely, whether rain or shine. Maintain yours perfectly with AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the most effective synthetic oil in Show Low.

Be Ready for the Blazing Sun

The spring season comes with a change in the weather. The temperature increases and the sun starts to shine brighter. This means that you have to start getting ready for the blazing sun. Moreover, if it snowed, this means there may still be patches of ice that will soon start to melt. That's why you should prepare in these ways:
  • As mentioned above, a slippery road demands that drivers allow more distance between each other and other objects. Doing so will increase your ability to stop safely before hitting others or having an accident.
  • Of course, if you want to stop safely, you need to guarantee that your brakes work as expected. To that end, be sure to check them regularly and take good care of their braking fluid.
  • As the sun and the heat start to get more intense, you will also need to pay more attention to the cooling system. This one is in charge of regulating the vehicle's temperature and preventing an overheated engine that can shut down.
  • The intense sun rays can also take a toll on your vehicle's appearance, its interiors, and its components. To keep them a bit more protected and in good condition, make use of sunshades.
  • Lastly, if you will be driving under the blazing sun of the hotter months, then it's essential to keep your skin covered and protected. Be sure to drive around with sunscreen on and wearing sunglasses and even gloves. This way, you can avoid dire consequences.
