Have you ever wondered about what changes you need to make to the way you drive in order to adjust as the seasons change? We are here to help! Overall, driving stays the same from city to city and season to season; however, there are some differences. Laws may differ and, with weather differences from season to season, road conditions often differ too. Here are the most important things to know about driving in spring in Colorado Springs!

It may rain still, so prepare accordingly.

The saying “April showers bring May flowers,” is true for a reason, being that spring often brings on a good amount of rain. The weather is the most back and forth in this season, as it could go from sunny and warm to rainy and gloomy at the drop of a hat. We advise you to simply be aware of the weather report as often as you can and have everything you need with you. Also, be sure to follow the rules of the road in the rain, a.k.a. drive slower and leave more space than you normally do between your car and the car in front of you!

Know that potholes are plentiful!

Potholes form easily in winter due to the erosion of the road because of weather and salt. However, they often go mostly unnoticed due to snow and rain. In spring, when the weather starts to clear up, the potholes come out to play. Be aware of this and be on the lookout when you are on the road.

Anticipate and prepare for sun glare.

The best way to prepare for sun glare is to make sure your visors are in working condition and have a pair of sunglasses available in the car. Sun glare can be truly blinding, causing disorientation when driving. For the safety of yourself and other drivers on the road, do not let sun glare affect you when it does not have to!

Understand how your allergies may affect you on the road.

Driving with allergies can sometimes cause major distractions. Sneezing and coughing can cause you to react with a sudden, jerky motion or can cause you to instinctually pull your hands off the wheel. Since spring is the allergy season for most, these risks are most prominent in spring. Simply make sure you prepare for your allergies accordingly. Furthermore, be aware of how allergy medication affects you. Some cause drowsiness, which further puts your driving at risk.
