Common Road Hazards: How to Handle Them

August 21st, 2019 by

At Zeigler Chevrolet in Schaumberg, we sell capable vehicles equipped to handle all kinds of road conditions. That being said, just being behind the wheel of a capable Chevy truck or SUV sold by one of our Chevy dealers isn’t enough. As the driver, you also have to make sure that you’re prepared for any kind of hazard the road can throw your way.

Sometimes poor weather can throw even the most experienced driver for a loop. Reacting effectively to poor weather and road conditions can help you avoid accidents and get to your destination safely. Keep your windshield wipers on and turn on your headlights for maximum visibility. If you’re worried about your wipers or brakes holding up, visit our Chevy service center. We make it easy to schedule an appointment online and our factory-trained mechanics use only the best OEM parts, so you know that our repairs will hold up.

Occasionally, the road hazard is actually another driver. A reckless driver can pose serious problems, whether they’re distracted by a cell phone or under the influence. Keep your distance from visibly distracted drivers and make sure that you’re ready to react in case they do something unexpected.

Pedestrians and cyclists can be reckless as well. A cyclist that strays out of the bike lane suddenly or a pedestrian that jaywalks without checking their surroundings can both pose a problem. Keep an eye out for anyone who suddenly enters the road, especially if you’re driving near a destination that’s popular with children.

If you’re looking for a new car that can handle everything the road throws your way, visit our Chevy dealership near Chicago. We’ll make it easy to find a car, truck, or SUV that offers the latest technology. We look forward to assisting you!
