Watch Out for These Potential Road Hazards
When it comes to driving, there are surprises around every corner. You have to always stay on your toes to watch for possible problems and to make sure you’re avoiding any potential collisions. Our Maserati dealership near Arlington Heights, IL loves making sure our customers stay as safe as possible, so we’re highlighting a few common road hazards to watch out for.
- Inattentive or reckless drivers: If you’re driving one of our vehicles, such as the 2019 Maserati Quattroporte, your driver-assist technology will help you avoid many obstacles, by monitoring your blind spot or keeping an eye out for lane drift. Still, it’s important to drive defensively, as well. Make sure to maintain a safe following distance from anyone who might be driving distractedly. Allow them to pass you, or pull ahead if you can.
- Bad weather: When the weather is bad, stay home! If you can’t, make sure to lower your speed to stay in control of your vehicle. Remember to slowly lean into your brakes and maintain a larger than usual following distance from other vehicles on the road.
- School zones: It’s important to always follow the recommended speed limit. Make sure to come to a complete stop if a school bus extends their stop sign. Always, keep a watchful eye for children running across the street.
Accidents still happen, no matter how safely you drive. Just remember, everything can be fixed. Visit our Maserati service center and let our professional team get you back up and running in no time. Our service center is open Monday through Friday 7:30a-6p, but we stay open until 7p from Tuesday through Thursday. Stop in anytime. In the meantime, stay safe out there!
