Depending on where you will be driving, there could be multiple road hazards in your path. No matter how long you have been driving, it is always good to get a refresher on how to properly handle driving situations that are potentially dangerous. This is why our team at Keyes Lexus of Valencia has put together some handy information that you can keep in the back of your mind so you are ready for dealing with common road hazards behind the wheel of your Lexus UX.
Country Lanes – When you are driving along a country road less traveled, you may have to worry about narrow lanes, sharp bends, cyclists, pedestrians, and more. It is best to make sure that you always keep your speed at the suggested limit and remain alert of your surroundings at all times.
Busy Residential Areas – When you are in a highly developed residential area, you need to keep an eye out for animals or children that may run out into the road. You also need to be mindful of school crossing patrols and vehicles that might be emerging from junctions. Rather than simply looking ahead down the road, it is best to scan the area and pay attention to parked cars where doors may open or children may emerge.
Of course, road hazards could be debris that falls into your path or you may run into busy work zones. The good news is that 2019 Lexus models are equipped with advanced safety technology to help detect potential hazards in your surroundings.
