There’s nothing quite like being behind the wheel of a new luxury vehicle like the 2020 Acura MDX or the 2020 Acura TLX, is there? Even if you drive a used Acura TLX, you’re still in for a treat whenever you slip behind the wheel. Unfortunately, you’re still at risk for encountering a road hazard no matter what kind of automobile you operate.

There are any number of dangers you might come across when you’re behind the wheel near Scranton, PA, beginning with bad weather. If you run into inclement weather, slow down and increase the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you. Turn on your wipers so your view of the road will remain clear. You should turn on your headlights as well.

Tailgaters can cause motorists to become nervous in the driver’s seat. If someone is riding too close to your rear bumper, resist the urge to tap your brakes or make sudden moves. Signal that you’re going to move into the right-hand lane and let the aggressive driver pass you. If there is no lane to the right, drive to the nearest intersection and turn off the road. Alternatively, pull into a service station or another brightly lit location so the tailgater can get past you.

Getting stuck behind or between 18-wheelers can be an unnerving experience even for seasoned drivers. Before you try to pass an 18-wheeler, it’s crucial for you to ensure the truck’s driver can see you. If you can’t see the truck’s mirror, its operator probably can’t see your vehicle. When you can see the other motorist’s reflection in the mirror, the odds are good the truck driver can see your car and it’s safe to pass.
