Caution from Your St. Louis Attorney: Use Extra Care When Traveling During Summer Holidays

Now that summer is here, it’s tempting for drivers to relax and just enjoy their commutes a little bit more. It’s stressful to deal with ice and snow during the winter. Even so, summer is not the time to let your guard down when it comes to driving. In fact, you might want to exercise a little bit more caution for many reasons.

Motorcycles – It’s hard to travel anywhere in St. Louis without seeing at least one motorcycle this time of year. Be extra cautious to ensure that you and motorcyclists can travel safely.

Impaired Drivers – Summer means more parties. That inevitably means more impaired drivers on the road. Learn how to spot drivers who might be under the influence, and always keep a good amount of distance between you and them while you’re driving.

Children – Now that children are out of school, many of them are out playing. This could mean many kids playing in the streets of their neighborhoods, and it’s not uncommon for them to run out into the road after a stray kickball. Be watchful.

As your St. Louis attorney, we’re just as excited as you are that summer is here. However, it’s important to remain safe, no matter what you’re doing this summer. If you or someone you love is injured in an accident, please contact a St. Louis attorney right away.
