Top 5 States

Safety Tip

Animal Collision

NY, NC, IL, TX, PA

Slow down in areas with deer crossing signs, especially at dawn and dusk.

Look out for a group. Deer don't usually wander alone. If you see a doe near the road, there could be a buck popping up nearby.

Fog and Mist

TX, CA, ME, NC, FL

 

Check your front and rear fog light, making sure that they work properly and that you know how to use them.

If fog forms inside of your windows, open them a crack and blast your defrosters. Give yourself plenty of room between you and the car ahead.

Parked Cars/Parking Lots

NY, CA, TX, IL, NC

 

Watch out for other drivers cutting across the parking spaces diagonally. When backing out, double check both ways and proceed slowly.

Park in well lit areas and ask security to walk you to your car if you don’t feel safe. Don’t double park.

Rain and Slick Roads

MA, TX, FL, NY, NC

 

Slow down and leave room between you and the vehicle in front of you. If you hydroplane or skid, do not slam on your brakes.

Do your best to keep your eyes and wheel in the direction you want to go.

Make sure your tires are not experiencing baldness or dry rotting and replace them as recommended.

Sun Glare

MA, CA, TX, NY, NC

 

Invest in some polarized sunglasses to reduce glare. Drive with your headlights on to provide extra visibility for other drivers on the road.

Keep your windshield clear and clean from smudges. Avoid storing papers and items on your dashboard.
