Most people are well aware of the dangers of driving in the winter – especially driving through snow and ice. It’s a good thing we don’t have to worry much about harsh winter weather here in Central Florida; however, did you know it can be just as dangerous to drive in the summer? This is especially true for all of us, as we have excessive heat and a TON of tourists visiting! This is why we want to share tips for staying safe while driving your new Toyota this summer and how our Orlando Toyota Service Center can help!
Practice safe driving this summer in your new Toyota!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that most fatal accidents happen between July and August, which means it’s more dangerous to drive in the summer than it is in the winter. We always want you to stay safe in your new Toyota in Orlando and summer is practically here! There are many elements that can cause dangerous driving conditions during this season and our Toyota dealership in Orlando is explaining a few.
- Vacation drivers: Most of us here in Central Florida are familiar with the struggles drivers on vacation bring. Not only are the roads more congested with families on their way to Walt Disney World and other tourist destinations, the danger is heightened by their unfamiliarity with the roads. This can lead to unpredictable driving, which is why it’s important for you to plan ahead before hitting the streets in your new Toyota.
- More bikes on the road: When the sun comes out, so do the bikes! This includes bicycles and motorcycles, which can make the roads more dangerous for you and the riders. It can be hard to see people on bicycles and motorcycles, which is why you have to pay closer attention to your surroundings and share the road.
- Summer break for schools: The roads can get pretty busy in the summer, as school is out and more teens are on the road. The added number of drivers with a lack of experience can cause more dangers for everyone else. Studies have shown teens are more likely to be involved in an accident than any other age group.
Prepare your new Toyota in Orlando for summer at our Toyota Service Center
Although we get the pleasure of enjoying warm weather all year long, we all know the sun and heat can get a bit overbearing in the summer! This can result in a number of problems with your new Toyota in Orlando, such as overheating and tire blowouts. To avoid overheating of your vehicle’s engine, bring your vehicle to our Toyota Service Center in Orlando and have your cooling system inspected.
The heat can also affect your vehicle’s tires, as the hot air can cause the rubber to expand and lose air. This is why it’s important to check your car tires regularly to ensure they have the right amount of air pressure!
