A Personal Injury Attorney on Avoiding a Car Accident This Summer July 22, 2016

A Personal Injury Attorney on Avoiding a Car Accident This Summer, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Between road trips and weekend drives, summer is a time of year that sees a lot of traffic on the road. It also means your chances of getting into an accident increase. Personal injury attorney Carl Nagle, founder of Nagle & Associates, PA in Winston Salem, NC, wants you to stay safe behind the wheel this summer.

Here, this auto accident lawyer offers three tips to help you avoid a collision:

  • Keep Your Car Maintained: From the windshield wipers and fluid levels to the tires and brakes, make sure your car is in tip-top shape. Good vehicle maintenance is key for safe travels. You’ll avoid hot-weather breakdowns in heavy traffic and problems like hydroplaning in pop-up summer thunderstorms.personal-injury-attorney-Winston-Salem-NC
  • Keep Your Distance: You may be a great driver and obey the rules of the road, but the driver in front of you, well, not so much. Leave enough space between your car and the vehicle ahead of you to allow for their errors. Watch for drivers stopping or changing lanes suddenly, and remember: If you’re driving 60 miles per hour, it will take you about 24 seconds to stop.
  • Keep Your Focus: Today, the average car weighs more than two tons, and it takes all your concentration to drive it safely, even at slow speeds. Don’t text, look for directions, eat, drink, or engage in other distracting activities while driving. Get a good night’s sleep before a long drive, take stretch breaks, and stop to rest if you get drowsy.
