    ROAD CONDITIONS AND HAZARDS

    Light

      Changing light conditions can greatly affect driving. Slow down for:

      Overcast skies, fog, smog, smoke and glare (especially at sunrise and sunset)

      When the vehicle behind you has high beams on, adjust your rearview mirror to night setting and slow down if you want the vehicle to pass you

      Use your sun visor and/or wear sunglasses for extreme sunshine or snow glare. Don't wear sunglasses at night

    Weather

      Rain, snow, sleet and ice make road surfaces slippery, and can obscure lane markings, traffic signage and road markings

      Slow down and use low beams in wet weather. Rule of thumb: when your turn your wipers on, turn your lights on

      If driving visibility is poor, pull off the road and wait for conditions to improve. Traveling at 5 or 10 mph risks a chain-reaction collision

      Switch to snow tires or all weather tires in the winter

      If you are caught in a snow storm be aware of overexposure and overexertion when trying to free your stuck vehicle. Stay inside until help arrives

      Be sure your windshield and windows are thoroughly clear of view-obstructing snow and ice. Use your defogger to increase visibility as you drive

      Clean snow, slush and dirt off your headlights and taillights for maximum visibility

    Traffic

      Watch for heavy and unpredictable traffic around sporting events, shopping centers, churches and schools. Also be aware of pedestrian traffic at these sites

      In addition to heavy traffic during peak commuting times, there may also be more traffic, vehicular and pedestrian, at lunch times

      Avoid congested areas whenever possible by planning alternate routes. Watch for children and bicycles in school areas

    Time of Day

      Sunday morning, 12 midnight to 2 a.m., is a dangerous time to drive because there are more drug and alcohol-impaired drivers sharing the road with you. The fatal collision rate is several times higher at night than during the day

      Don't drive when you are extremely tired, and don't rely on coffee or caffeine pills to keep you awake

    Railroad Crossings

      Always slow down to go over the uneven pavement surrounding railroad crossings so you have firm control of the vehicle

      Check in both directions TWICE even if you don't see a train the first time

      Make sure conditions for hearing are optimal, turn down your radio, and lower your window prior to crossing so you can hear a train

    Construction

    Be especially cautious of:

      Work crews, law enforcement personnel and other pedestrians at construction sites

      Heavy equipment which may block visibility. The heavy equipment operator may not see or hear your vehicle approaching

      Rough pavement, potholes, building materials or barriers that could cause a collision if in the path of your vehicle

      Speed limits in construction zones
