The weather in spring, especially in early spring, can be severe and unpredictable. From icy snows, to sunshine, heavy rain, and/or wind, the weather can make home management and travel very difficult! Are you prepared to handle the unique challenges that spring may throw your way?
One thing you can do to keep yourself safe is to have an emergency kit in both your house and your car. Some things to include in your kit are items like a flashlight, batteries, bottled water, packaged food, a blanket, a first aid kit, and safety flares. If you are driving, it will be extremely important to monitor the road conditions and leave plenty of room between the cars around you. This is especially true in times of heavy rain, slow, and/or sleet. You will also have to engage in defensive driving and be aware of what other drivers around you are doing! Although you might be obeying common safety rules, you can’t be certain that others around you are taking the same safety precautions.
it is your duty as a member of your community to drive your car safely, responsibly, and with regard for the well-being and safety of others. This is especially true to remember in cases where you’ve been drinking! Call a designated driver and save the life of not only yourself, but other innocent bystanders. Also play it safe and do not engage in distracted driving, such as talking on your cell phone or texting.
