The beautiful wildflowers in Texas attract locals, visitors, and photographers, but it is important that each person keep in mind the dangers that can accompany viewing the landscape.
Many of the most recognized spots to view areas covered in Blue Bonnets and other flowers are right next to the highway. But pulling over or stopping for a look can result in serious Texas Car Accidents. That’s why it is so important to follow these three steps when stopping along the highway:
- Find A Safe Location- Preferably an area with parking or a wide shoulder along a straight stretch of road.
- Slow Down Early- Avoid slamming on brakes to make your turn off.
- Use Turn and Emergency Signals- When slowing down to stop along the road, use signals to inform other drivers of your intention. Using emergency flashers will also help make other aware of your location.
An article from KBTX News added it is important to also be aware of wildlife, such as snakes, spiders, and poisonous plants, when visiting outdoor areas this spring and summer.
