Blog – Drivers Can Help Prevent Dangerous Roadway Debris

From seat belts, rain, work zones and tire pressure – we know that you know there are plenty of things to consider before getting on the road.  But, do you ever think much about roadway debris? It’s a potential danger all drivers should be aware of – it’s also something that everyone can help prevent.

Selmon Extension maintenance crews are picking up a lot of debris along Gandy Boulevard.   It’s not only unsafe for vehicles to drive over this debris, but also to the workers as well.  What can you do? Drivers need to make sure their vehicle loads are tied down and covered. It’s also important not to overload your vehicle. To cut down on the chances of having a blowout (that’s what contributes to the tons and tons of rubber out on the roads), it’s essential that you maintain your vehicle’s tires and make sure they’re at the proper pressure.

Please make sure that you’re not letting things fly off your vehicle.  This will keep you and your passengers safe.
