Summer Dangers That Can Kill You

With the weather warming up, many of us are ready to explore the outdoors and embrace all that summer has to offer.

From swimming in public pools to grilling on your outdoor barbeque, being bit by a deadly mosquito and suffering from sun poisoning, summer has shown to be more dangerous than we thought.

There are many risks you need to be aware of and precautions you must take in order to ensure your safety. For instance, wearing sunblock to avoid sunburn, knowing when the current is to strong and staying out of the water, and becoming aware of the deadly plants and pests that could kill you.

Although winter is known for its dangerous icy roads, some of us fail to realize that summer driving also calls for major concern. People are taking vacations (The Top Family Travel Destinations in the U.S.) which are causing increased congestion on the road. More people are riding around on motorcycles and teens are hitting the road in excitement.

Before you decide to rush into your summer fun, make sure you educate yourself on the summer dangers first.
