Good Driving Habits

  • Concentrate while driving
    • Make sure you always have a clear head before driving. Alcohol and certain drugs, both illegal and legal, can severely impair your driving skills. Many prescription and over-the-counter medications can cause dangerous drowsiness. Get a good night's rest and don't drive for long stretches without a break. If you are tired, don't risk the safety of yourself and others on the highway by trying to drive. Designate a driver or choose another means of transportation such as taxi cab or public transportation.

  • Avoid Driving Alone When Tired
    • Driving with someone else in your vehicle can increase your overall alertness. It is well recognized that when driving alone, especially when over-exerted, your chances of a crash are dramatically increased.

  • Never drive in a hurry
    • Allow yourself plenty of extra time to reach your destination and allow for emergencies or traffic jams. Do not drive in a hurry. Allow yourself some extra time so that you can be more relaxed while driving and thereby cut down on the incidences of road rage, such as excessive speeding, tailgating and weaving in and out between cars.

  • Drive car with safety features
    • Safety should always be a top priority when shopping for a vehicle. Research the safety performance of any vehicle you are considering buying including how the vehicle performs in crash tests. Both driver and passenger side air bags are now mandatory in all new cars. Look for side impact bags in many new models as well. When buying a used vehicle, look for one with air bags. Research what type of safety systems are in the car and choose the safest to protect you and your loved ones in the event of a collision.

  • Follow Safety Rules
    • Always wear your safety belt and make sure all your passengers are buckled properly, even on short trips. If traveling with children, educate yourself on the many kinds of child safety seats and restraints. Make sure children ages 12 and under are always buckled up in the back seat, the safest place to ride.Try to follow all the taffic rules.

  • Wear your safety belt
    • During a crash, properly fastened safety belts distribute the forces of rapid deceleration over larger and stronger parts of the person's body , such as the chest , hips and shoulders. The safety belt stretches slightly to slow your body down and to increase its stropping distance. The difference between the belted person¿s stopping distance and the unbelted person's stopping distance is significant li>
