Scenic drives in the summer are plentiful in Boulder – and that’s putting it mildly.

Boulder is a city that sits at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. One need only drive down South Boulder Road to take in the sweeping vistas of the Flatirons and all of the “purple mountain majesties” that lie beyond.

Summer in Boulder and the driving is easy… or is it?

More people on the roads traveling, wildlife on the move, teens on summer break and more pedestrians all make for added distractions while driving in the warmer months. Be cautious, prepared and drive defensively to reduce your risk of an accident.

Drive in safety and comfort with our summertime driving tips:

  • Air conditioner inspection for hot summer days and lengthy road trips.
  • Ensure your cooling system is in good shape.
  • Watch for potholes.
  • Be aware of pedestrians, motorcycles and bikes.
  • Check tire pressure.
