Are you interested in buying or leasing a new Toyota vehicle? Has one of the pre-owned Toyota cars in our inventory near Wilkes-Barre, PA caught your eye? Regardless of whether you want to get a new or previously owned Toyota model, one thing is almost a given—it’s quite probable you’ll encounter some scary situations on the road from time to time. With that in mind, it’s wise to learn how you should handle those situations before you find yourself in the midst of one.

If you’re located near our Wilkes-Barre, PA Toyota dealership, you know the weather can change pretty quickly. The skies might be clear one minute and shrouded with threatening clouds the next. If you’re on the road, the weather takes a turn for the worse, and precipitation starts to fall, slow down and increase your following distance by several seconds at least. Turn on your wipers and headlights, making sure your headlamps are set to the appropriate level.

It’s not just precipitation you have to worry about. You may encounter fog from time to time as well. If you encounter a patch of fog, you should follow the steps just provided with one exception. While you might turn your headlights on high if it’s raining, you should avoid doing so when it’s foggy to prevent the fog from reflecting the light back at you. If your car has fog lights, you should use them in foggy conditions instead of your headlights’ low beams.

Animals can create scary situations as well. When you see a sign indicating there are deer in the area, slow down and proceed with caution. Flash your headlights as you enter an area where deer might be present to try to convince them to stay off the road.
