Summer driving hazards in Los Angeles

The summer is upon in Los Angeles, California, and that will lead to even more cars on the roads than the rest of the year. Between work traffic, local traffic and tourist traffic, there will be plenty of congestion and other issues to deal with on the roads of the state. Here are some common driving hazards you will encounter this summer.

You will encounter many more motorcyclists and bicyclists during the summer months than in the previous months of the year. This is due to the beautiful, warm weather. Always look twice to save a life, especially around these two types of vehicles on the road.

Pedestrians are another hazard. More people will be walking to the store, to the movies, to restaurants and to newsstands than in the past. Be mindful of pedestrians and slow down as you approach intersections where you might not be able to see corners or crosswalks.

The summer also brings with it heavy rainfall and glaring sun. The sun is much stronger in the summer, which can be blinding even if you are wearing sunglasses. Heavy rains can come out of nowhere and cause flooding, which is very dangerous.

Road construction tends to pick up in volume during the summer months. You could very well encounter road construction everywhere you turn in Los Angeles in the summer months.

Summer driving hazards can be extremely dangerous, sometimes even deadly, which is why you need to be prepared when behind the wheel. If you are involved in a Los Angeles car accident, an experienced attorney can help you seek compensation.
