Defensive driving: spring driving hazards
Fleet Management provides monthly driving tips to provide agencies with a way to promote good defensive driving techniques ensuring the safety of state vehicle operators. For April 2019, Fleet is providing drivers on spring driving hazards.

Drastic weather changes, increased traffic and the temptation to get out and get moving are springtime hazards drivers must prepare for. Drivers must be able to recognize these hazards and apply the right defenses.

When dealing with hazards, such as: adverse weather, sun glare, potholes/road damage, increased traffic and road construction it's important to observe proper speed for conditions, react properly to hazards, maintain proper following distance and be attentive.
