Hazards that cause summertime car accidents

Before you plan the next road trip for your family, you need to be aware of the various hazards that present themselves during the summer months in Kissimmee. With Florida, a popular state for people to retire to and a hot vacation spot, you will notice an increase in traffic volume in the summer. Let's take a look at other summer hazards that affect driver safety.

Construction zones seem to crop up everywhere you turn when the weather gets warmer in Florida. Make sure you obey all construction zone speed limits, turn on your headlights and be on the lookout for debris and construction workers so you do not wind up in a tragic accident.

Motorcycles and bicycles will be more prominent during the summer months. Since riders have less to worry about when it comes to the temperatures and the weather, you will see them more often. It's always best to take an extra second at an intersection or before you change lanes to look for one of these vehicles.

As we all know, Florida's weather can be very unpredictable. Rarely do we get an afternoon without a quick downpour. Heavy rain can affect travel, especially if it is heavy enough to cause roads to flood. Always turn around, don't drown.

Children are very unpredictable and will be playing outside this summer with school out. Be on the lookout for children no matter where you drive. Always remember that a ball rolling into the street is indicative of a child not far behind.

Driving in the summer in Florida can be a bear. You never know when you will get stuck in traffic due to a car accident, construction, wildlife or any other hazards. Stay safe this summer during your family vacation by knowing what hazards to look for on the road. If you or a loved one is injured by the negligence of another person, be sure to seek medical care and learn more about your legal options for seeking compensation.
