Dealing with Road Hazards

700 × 449
Here at Brunswick Auto Mart, safety is our top priority. We want all of our customers to be prepared for the unexpected, even though it may be difficult. That's why we've compiled a list of the most common hazards you'll encounter on the road and how you can take measures to protect yourself and your vehicle from damage.

  • Bad Weather: Aside from snow and ice, you’ll also want to be aware of rain, extreme wind, and other severe weather while you’re on the road. During heavy storms, maintain a slower speed so your tires don't start hydroplaning. Turn on your headlights and keep your eyes on the road at all times.
  • Traffic Jams: Highly-congested areas are breeding grounds for accidents and car wrecks, so it's important to always remain alert at the wheel. Whether you're driving through a school zone or near a bike lane, always be prepared to brake in case someone darts in front of your car.
  • Reckless Drivers: Whether a driver is texting, intoxicated, or simply not paying attention, you should always keep an eye out for chaotic drivers. If you spot someone driving recklessly, create as much distance as you can and allow the car to pass.
  • Potholes and Debris: If you live in Brunswick, OH, you probably encounter potholes everyday. If you spot a nasty pothole, try to merge into another lane to avoid it. If you can't merge, drive as slowly as possible over the pothole, so your vehicle doesn't incur any damage. 
  • Construction Zones: No matter if workers are present or not, it's always important to drive slowly through a construction zone. Take care to follow the posted speed limit and be prepared to stop for any workers or debris in the road.
