Drive Safe, Arrive Safe

Driving Safely

In general, driving today is considered to be much safer than in the past. Today, we are driving safer vehicles on safer roads. While this has resulted in the lowest number of collisions in the US ever recorded in 2008 [source: NHTSA], the numbers, unfortunately, are still disturbing and preventable. In 2008, there were almost six million car accidents in the U.S. The best and most effective way to reduce collisions on our roads, and in-turn collision repairs, is to follow best driving practices and to obey the rules of the road.

With that in mind, here is a list of safe-driving tips that everyone can utilize so that automotive accidents can be reduced in the future:

Safe Driving Tips

  • When behind the wheel, make sure that you are only focused on your driving and the road. Distractions include texting, talking on your hands-free device, adjusting your radio, or even eating while driving. It’s simple. Put all of your attention to the road and keep both eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel at all times.
  • Put your seatbelt on. This simple task can save your life if you were to get into a collision.
  • If you know you will be drinking, make sure that you have a designated driver. Or, ask for a cab to be ordered or ask someone for a ride. While this may be an inconvenience, the consequences of not doing so can be life-changing for not only you but for someone else as well.
  • Take your time and obey the speed limits posted on the road and drive to road conditions. If you really need to get somewhere sooner, the safest option is to just leave earlier!

With more vehicles on the road than ever before, it’s imperative that drivers learn to respect not only the road but one another as well. Think of the passengers of the car in front of you as your own family. Everyone is on the same mission on the road, to come home safely to our destination and loved ones.
