Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter what kind of vehicle you drive. Road hazards don’t discriminate regardless of whether you drive a 2019 Hyundai Tucson, a 2019 Hyundai Sonata, or an older automobile produced by another brand. In other words, your car’s make and model don’t increase or decrease the likelihood that you’ll encounter a threat when you’re driving.

Road hazards include all sorts of things that can pose a threat, including the weather. If precipitation starts to fall, slow down. Turn on your wipers as well as your headlights and increase the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you.

Tailgaters can create dangerous situations for themselves and others. If you notice someone following you a bit too close to your rear bumper, you need to exercise restraint and resist the temptation to tap your brakes. Instead of antagonizing an already unsafe driver, simply move into the right-hand lane and let the person pass. If there isn’t a lane to the right, turn off the road at the next intersection so the tailgater will stop following you.

Even when you’re in an urban area, you may see a sign that indicates that wildlife like deer may enter the roadway. If you see such a sign, slow down. Flicker your headlights a few times to warn animals that you’re approaching. Keep a vigilant eye out for animals crossing in front of your automobile and wildlife approaching your car from the sides. Be prepared to stop at any moment when you’re driving through an area where animals may attempt to cross the road.
