Spring is almost here, make sure you and your car are ready!

Spring in AL

As the spring begins, there are seasonal changes of which drivers should be aware.  Spring is a time for potholes. During the winter, water under the pavement freezes and thaws, eroding the foundation of the road. Potholes tend to form with the constant flow of traffic going over this weakened road. Be aware of potholes so you do not sustain damage to your car.

Spring is also the season for rain. Slippery roads can make it harder for drivers to maintain control of their vehicles. When it is raining, it is a good idea to give yourself extra time to get somewhere, reduce your speed, and give yourself a couple extra seconds to stop as you are driving to avoid a collision.
