3 Ways to Start Your New Year Out Right

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Defensive Driving Tips

New Year’s Resolutions aren’t just about your health, your weight, or your job; they are about taking a look at your entire life and making sure you start the year out in the best way possible. Yes, that includes all things driving-related. So here’s your January driver’s checklist. If you can complete this (it won’t take too long, we promise), you will be on your way to a more stress-free start to your new year.

Eliminate Those Traffic Tickets

Who wants to start the year with points on their record and increased insurance rates? Probably no one. Don’t worry, you can easily get them removed from your record by taking an online traffic course through DefensiveDriving.com (in most states). Once the ticket is eliminated, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

Make Sure Your Car is in Shape

Now is the perfect time to do all that routine maintenance that you have to do once a year. What easier way to remember it than just getting it done at the beginning of every year? You are probably due for an oil change (you will probably need this again come July), new windshield wipers, a tire rotation, and maybe even a new air filter. Not quite sure if your car is ready for these things yet? Check out your owner’s manual: There’s a lot of good information to be found in it.

Commit to Be a Better Driver

You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again: Texting and driving is just as dangerous as drinking and driving. It makes you take your eyes off the road, and even if it is only for a split second, that could be the moment the car in front of you slams on his brakes. If you do feel so inclined to text, first consider if that text is worth your life. Yes, it’s that serious. A better option is to start out the New Year by pledging to not text while behind the wheel. You can do so at ItCanWait.com. While there, you may also want to check out the Texting & Driving Simulator so you can see just how serious it really is.

See, that wasn’t too bad. Now get out there and make this year the best year ever!
