Whether you are heading to and from work, visiting friends or family, or just running out to pick up some groceries, it is not uncommon for people to take the potential dangers of the road for granted.
Whenever you pull out of your driveway and hit the streets, there are countless potential hazards that could lead to an accident. Bad weather could lead to ponding on the roads which could lead to accidents and windy weather can affect the steering of larger vehicles and trucks. As we know, the popularity of smartphones also means a drastic increase in distracted driving from people texting and driving and even checking social media while on the roads. Drunk driving is also still a concern for anyone on the roads.
