Driving Safely in All Seasons: Avoiding the Hazards of Spring Driving

Some people may feel that the worst is over once winter ends and spring begins. On the contrary, safety must remain a priority when the spring sun shines and melts away the physical traces of winter. Because of the still-low temperature and the melting snow, roads often remain hazardous for drivers during spring.

Although daytime temperatures rise high enough to melt snow, nighttime temperatures tend to drop low enough to turn puddles into ice, making roads slippery when you least expect them to be. Reducing the speed of the car can certainly prevent losing control and skidding. To prevent skid accidents, ensure that the tires are newly changed, to maintain traction with the road.

Additionally, cruise control can maintain the car's speed in case your urges get the best of you, and you feel like going as fast as you normally would on a dry road. Cruise control keeps a car driving within acceptable speed limits. However, you need to ensure that the cruise control is activated while you’re driving.

Vehicles with an all-wheel drive are considered the safest ones to drive in spring and winter because these are easier to maneuver out of dangerous situations. When it rains, all-wheel drives can move more efficiently through slippery roads with better control. When temperatures drop and puddles freeze, an all-wheel drive can allow drivers to move to a safer direction quickly and safely.

It is a good thing that many all-wheel drives are now equipped with electronic stability control and the anti-lock braking system. Many used cars for sale Edmonton dealers offer have these features, which prevent drivers from losing control of their vehicles—especially in winter and spring when roads are at their most slippery. Anti-lock braking systems keep wheels rolling instead of stopping abruptly to allow the car to turn to a safe direction instead of skidding. Electronic stability control also prevents the car from skidding.

During spring, people need to be aware of animal crossings. Unsuspecting drivers in provinces like Alberta may be surprised to see a deer suddenly crossing their path. People need to be extra careful because deer migrate in great numbers during spring. Most used cars in Edmonton are equipped with necessary features like seatbelts and anti-lock braking systems to prevent passenger injuries during unexpected animal crossings.

Spring is the time when you need to maximize your visibility. You should check your wipers, mirrors, and lights and keep them in good shape. Used cars in Edmonton should be kept in their best condition in time for spring. For more information on safety regulations for springtime, go to Wheels.ca.
