Portland December weather is here and it’s time to be extra careful while driving and biking. Fallen leaves are on the ground, it’s getting dark early, the weather is colder and wetter, and road conditions are a bit more dangerous.
Here are a few safety tips for driving and biking:
- Make sure your car and bike tires are properly inflated.
- Remember that hydroplaning is possible whenever road conditions are wet.
- Always pay attention when driving and biking. Put another way, stay off your phone.
- If you fall while biking or get in a car accident, see a chiropractor immediately, even if you feel fine. Scheduling an evaluation will help you understand what hidden pain and mobility issues may be just around the corner.
Stay safe and active, Portland.
