Summer Driving

As summer approaches there aren't necessary the same hazards there are in winter, but there are hazards just the same.
 
There's no point saying to a Police officer you hit the cyclists off their bike because you couldn't see them because of the sun! I assure the Police officer will not be impress. So therefore a setting sun in your eyes while driving is a huge problem and not many drivers think to slow down because they can't see what's ahead because of the sun.

Cold weather

Cold weather is on its way. Make sure your car windows are clear  of frost before driving off, including your side mirrors. It won't help you if you tell Police Officer after hitting a cyclist or a pedrestion, it was becasue you couldn't see.
 
Be aware of black ice on unsalted roads. Remember you can't see black ice, but a indication might be that you feel the steering wheel feels lighter to turn, which means you should keep your speed down. Over the years I've seen many cars overturned, usually in a ditch and through the hedge and in a field due to black Ice.
