Navigating Common Road Hazards

For as luxurious as new 2019 Land Rover models are, they’re equally smart. All Land Rover SUVs offer a slew of advanced driver safety aids like lane-keeping assist and rear-cross traffic alert. However, we here at Land Rover Orlando believe that truly safe driving starts and ends with the driver.

Today, we’re breaking down some common road hazards and what you should do when you encounter one. As your trusted Orlando Land Rover dealership, we want to help you stay as safe as possible. 

The most common type of road hazard is poor weather. Luckily, keeping safe during poor weather is easy when you follow a few steps. Slow down and drive at a safe speed that matches the flow of traffic. We also recommend that you keep extra distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Remember to keep your windshield and your washer fluid levels clean and filled up, as a dirty window can significantly impair your visibility. 

When it comes to traffic, all we want to do is find the quickest way out. However, driving this way makes you more prone to accidents. When you find yourself in a traffic jam, remember to keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you. If you notice someone driving recklessly, your best course of action is to let them pass. 

If you live in a neighborhood, you may be familiar with driving around pedestrians and bicyclists. When driving in residential areas, it’s safe to assume that no one can see or hear you, meaning that you should drive with extra caution. 

As your local Florida Land Rover dealers, we want all our drivers to stay safe this summer. Visit us today at 199 South Lake Destiny Dr to learn more!
