Apart from days off from school, college students will most likely hit the road and head for a popular vacation destination, where they will be able to relax and have fun with their friends. For most of them, it will require traveling by car. This, however, calls for extra caution since the number of cars on the roads dramatically increases, as does the risk of getting into an accident. In today’s article, RiteCare auto injury clinic in Hialeah shares 3 useful tips worth familiarizing yourself with before you even get into the car. 1.

Always fully focus on what’s ahead of you and navigate the car with both hands on the steering... read more
