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

Winter Safe Driving Tips [Infographic]

Snow-covered road

As mentioned in our previous blog article, if there is anything better than getting your car repaired at Keri Coach Works when it is involved in a collision, it is not needing to get it repaired at all!

You may have noticed that much of the country is buried in snow, and our collective teeth are now audibly chattering, thanks to the Polar Vortex and the most recent Arctic blast it has sent our way. The resulting combination of cold, ice, sleet, snow, and careless drivers has created winter road conditions that make driving not just difficult but downright dangerous. For that reason, we have prepared this infographic to remind even the most seasoned drivers how to stay safe when inclement weather throws us a fast ball.
