Risk of Accidents Increases This Time of Year - Spring Safety Tips!


With spring unfolding in North Carolina, the streets and trails come alive with energy and vibrancy. As residents of the Tar Heel State embrace the warmer weather, there's a noticeable uptick in outdoor activities. People are dusting off their bicycles, lacing up their walking shoes, and preparing their gardens for the season ahead. It's a time of renewal and joy, but it's also a time when the risk of accidents can increase.

As more folks venture outside, the likelihood of personal injury incidents, such as pedestrian accidents, bicycle crashes, and slip-and-fall injuries, can rise. While enjoying the beautiful spring weather, it's essential to remain vigilant about our safety and the safety of others around us.


Here are some tips to help you stay safe this spring:

  • Be Visible: Whether you're cycling, jogging, or walking, ensure you're easily seen by others, especially motorists. Wear bright clothing and use reflective gear during dusk or dawn.

  • Stay Alert: Keep your eyes and ears open, especially when crossing streets or walking in busy areas. Avoid distractions like texting or wearing headphones at high volumes.

  • Know the Rules: Familiarize yourself with local traffic laws, whether you're on foot, on a bike, or behind the wheel. Adhering to these rules can significantly reduce the risk of accidents.

  • Maintenance Matters: If you're pulling your bike out for the first time this season, give it a thorough check. Ensure your brakes work, the tires are inflated, and the chain is lubricated.

  • Property Owners: Ensure your property is safe for visitors. Repair any uneven pathways, secure loose railings, and clear debris from walkways.
