With the snow and ice gone so too are the worries of winter driving conditions. However, even with warmest of temperatures and sunniest of skies there are driving precautions that all drivers should adhere to during the warm summer months. Here are few tips to keep in mind to keep you and your family safe.

Pack with Care

While many summer activities require large amounts of equipment and supplies, don't let these items block your view of the road. When packing the car make sure that you can see out of all windows to ensure full visibility.

If items must be placed outside of the vehicle make sure they are safely secured by using rope, bungee cords or a roof rack/cargo carrier. Furthermore, if carrying a large load slow down, nobody wants to be in or near a speeding vehicle full of equipment.
