Stop Skidding Around [Infographic]

Car skidding on snowy road

To everything
There is a season
And a time to every purpose
under heaven…

— Pete Seeger (“Turn! Turn! Turn!”)


It’s embarrassing to admit, but we really wish we had no customers. We would happily find a new line of work if their cars were, miraculously, no longer subject to dents, dings, and more serious damage. Regrettably, despite drivers’ best efforts and all the high-tech anti-collision gadgetry built into today’s automobiles, they still get involved in fender benders, sideswipes, smashups, and other types of accidents. And these accidents occur at all times of year. Every season has its special road hazards that drivers should be aware of. These include, for example:

  • Spring: newly active animals, a flurry of bicyclists on the road, sudden hailstorms, and unexpected potholes
  • Summer: busy construction zones, tire blowouts due to heat, more motorcyclists on the road, and sun glare
  • Fall: increased driving in the dark, more deer out during mating season, and pockets of fog and frost
