South Carolina is blessed to have great warm weather for us all to enjoy. Often warm weather can contribute to car wrecks in ways we sometimes may not think about.
Here are 4 Ways Warm Weather Can Cause Car Accidents:
1.) Sun Glare
We’ve all experienced times when the glaring sun makes it difficult to drive. Often glaring sun can cause drivers to not be able to see stop signs or traffic lights, creating dangerous situations. Glaring sun can also cause drivers to not see cars traveling when they are turning or cause difficulty in seeing lanes of traffic further leading to dangerous driving situations.
2.) Vehicle Issues
Changing temperature can affect the air pressure in your tires and improperly inflated tires can increase the risk of failure. Hot weather can cause your tires to weaken and even fail, leading to dangerous driving conditions.2
3.)Increase of teenagers on the road
Teens are more likely than older drivers to underestimate dangerous situations while driving.3 During the warmer months (Spring & Summer) students are out having fun for Spring Break or Summer Break and are more likely to be on the roads.
Everyone enjoys a nice summer vacation to the beach, mountains, or just staying around town. With the increase of trips being taken for Spring Break and during the Summer, traffic increases. This increase in traffic can cause accidents to increase.
