Everyone benefits from safer driving. Review these tips to help you drive as safely as possible.
Distractions while driving are a leading cause of accidents. When you are behind the wheel, focus on the road. Even seemingly harmless distractions like eating, drinking, and using the radio can cause an accident. Stay focused!
No one has more responsibility to avoid accidents than you. Always expect the unexpected, and drive so you can avoid dangerous situations. Keep enough space between you and the car in front of you, have a plan to avoid an accident if the other cars near you suddenly make a dangerous move, and slow down when you are in unfamiliar places.
Headlights increase your visibility and help other drivers see you, which can make all the difference between a safe trip and an accident. Use your headlights even in daylight to maximize their safety potential.
Using a device while driving interferes with your complete and undivided attention being where it should be: on driving. Some states have laws against using cell phones while driving. Even hands-free devices distract users. So don’t use your cell phone while driving.
Each text divides your attention for at least a few seconds. At high speeds, your car travels farther than you think while you’re sending or reading a quick text. Texting while driving is also illegal in many states, so just avoid the risk and leave the texts alone until you get to your destination.
Speeding leads to many accidents that simply did not need to occur. Speeding is illegal, dangerous, and can lead to higher insurance rates. You won’t save any meaningful time by speeding, so it’s all downside with no upside.
Following these tips will help you stay safe on the road. You’ll also avoid costly traffic tickets for unsafe driving, and maybe even see your insurance rates go down for a safe driving record.
