A Guide to Summer Road Safety for Memorial Day
Date:5/26/2013

Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) May 26, 2013

Solution: Keep the car’s radio on to stay apprised of the storm’s development. In rainy weather, use your low beams and drive slower than usual. Brake earlier to leave more distance between your car and the car ahead. If the rain becomes very heavy, pull onto the shoulder of the road, making sure to choose a secti
