Use caution: Take a brake behind wheel

Warmer temperatures mean a rush to the outdoors. It also means as motorists, we need to be a bit more cautious.

Wintertime is simple. We slow down due to slush and snow. Springtime? We seem to lose that defensive driving.

There is plenty of reason to give it a brake. Construction season is under way. More children are out and about. And, sometimes we can be distracted by the smallest things, especially our phones.

Drivers can enjoy the warming trend, but must also remember there is a major responsibility of being behind the wheel.
