Auto Insurance Can Help You Feel More Safe than Sorry On the Road this Summer

Road safety during summer is something we should take very seriously – as seriously as we do our vacation planning, in fact. For many families, summer means increased frequency on the road, whether it be to drive to nearby beach destinations or to the local mall and recreational areas. Keeping your vehicle in shape can help you avoid road mishaps – and unpleasant spikes in your auto insurance premiums.

Overheated engines, unchecked tire pressure and low levels of transmission fluid can wear down your vehicle, especially when you use it more frequently in the summer. Taking your vehicle to your trusted lube shop or mechanic for a quick tune up and oil change before you hit the road is advisable to protect your family from inconvenient stops or pull-overs which could lead to a collision.

The weather can also be detrimental. This is obviously something you have no control over, but there are precautions you can take to ensure that you do not find yourselves in compromising situations. Thunderstorms are common in the late spring and summer – which can result in damaging wind, hail, slick roads, and fallen tree limbs. You can be the safest driver in the world and still be a victim of unexpected circumstances. In Texas, driving in summer can be just as dangerous as driving in winter, as it can be compounded by young, inexperienced drivers, speeding and plain carelessness. To protect yourself, review your auto insurance coverage to see if you are adequately insured, not just for possible damages to your vehicle, but also for related medical expenses, should you or your passengers need medical care.

We want you to enjoy your summer road trips, but more importantly, we want you and your family to feel safe and secure – knowing that your auto insurance is set to the right limits for any unexpected turns.
