The Key to Driving Safety

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Leave Early, Drive Slower, Live Longer

How many times do you get on the road, see someone driving like a maniac, and wonder who gave them a license?  One of the key habits of reckless drivers is distraction.  Being distracted takes a driver’s attention from the road way and can lead to potentially deadly mistakes.

How can you prevent distractions?
1. Plan your trips out.  Makes sure you know where you’re going.
2. Leave about an hour ahead of time.  One minute or thirty minutes you’re still late.  It is both futile and foolish to run people off of the road because you are in a rush.
3. Be patient with other roadway users.  People often make mistakes.
4. Preset radio stations.  Have stations that you enjoy listening to already set.
5. Avoid texting, dialing, and using a cell phone while driving.  In school zones it is illegal to use a cell phone. If your car has a built-in bluetooth, utilize it.  However, carrying on a conversation can also pose as a hazard.

As always you need to pay attention to the road and everything around you.  Not only are you driving for yourself, you’re also driving for everyone else on the road.
