HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Police in Harrisonburg are on the lookout for unsafe driving habits. Officers said a lot of accidents involve drivers waving others out into traffic.
Police officers say the warm weather does have an influence on reckless driving. More people are out on the roads headed to events, which leaves more room for traffic issues.
Some driving habits, such as cutting through a business parking lot, are considered reckless driving by police. One driver said taking time before you drive is crucial.
"Being ready on the road before you leave actually I think is one of the most important things. I see a lot of people tend to reach and look for stuff, and that's usually the most dangerous," said Abbott Mujica.
Harrisonburg police officers will have extra patrols and checkpoints out on the roads this spring and summer.
