No matter how long you’ve been driving, vehicle safety should always be your top priority. But even if you always practice safe driving, accidents can still happen anyway, so it’s best to be prepared for anything the road throws your way. To help you identify common road hazards, our staff here at Alfa Romeo of Glenbrook has put together a short guide for how to avoid unpredictable dangers on the road. 

Inclement Weather

Weather is always unpredictable, especially here in Fort Wayne, IN. Whether we’re experiencing heavy rain, ice, hail, sleet, or snow, inclement weather can make visibility and road conditions extremely hazardous. To protect your Alfa Romeo car, make sure to maintain a slow and steady pace while driving in a rain or snow storm. Keep a safe distance between you and other vehicles in case you need to suddenly brake, and if you’re having trouble seeing, don’t hesitate to pull over until the weather improves.

Road Work

While you can’t really avoid bad weather, you can try to avoid construction zones. Before you leave, check your phone’s GPS to see if there’s any road work delays on your route. If possible, take a detour to avoid heavy traffic. If you’re caught in the middle of a road work-related traffic jam, stick to the posted speed limit and be on the lookout for construction workers or equipment in the road.
