Driving Tips for Safe Commuting and Traveling in 2020
Stop Driving While Distracted
We all have a lot going on every day. Technology, kids, busy schedules and more make it easy to become distracted while driving. Here are some ways that you can safely stay focused on the road:
Don’t Drive When Impaired
Nearly all of us know someone who was seriously injured in a car accident caused by an impaired driver, usually one under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs. Prescription opioid and legal marijuana-related vehicle crashes are on the rise, and with all the ride-sharing services available today, like Uber and Lyft, why would anyone risk a wreck when under the influence of these substances?
In addition, another form of impaired driving is being too tired while behind the wheel, like when you’re on a long trip. Stop along the way at a rest area or hotel, grab a few hours of shut-eye, and then hit the road again refreshed and awake!
Drive More Defensively
Because of the increase in distracted and impaired drivers, driving defensively in order to avoid an accident is the rule. To do so, use these tips:
Adjust to Weather Conditions
Winter weather affects every vehicle differently. Make sure your vehicle is ready for anything that Mother Nature comes up with.
Maintain Your Vehicle
You need to make sure that your vehicle is always in safe operating condition, and that means routine inspections and maintenance. Follow your manufacturer-recommended intervals found in your owner’s manual:
