4 Simple Steps for Driving Safely
The highway can be a dangerous place, from obstructions on the road to bad weather creating terrible driving conditions. Here are 4 simple steps to follow to keep you driving safely this season.
No More 10 and 2
Holding your steering wheel at the classic 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock is dangerously outdated. This was done before airbags and power steering was common. It is recommended to keep your hands at 9 o’clock and 3 o’clock.
Be Careful of Your Blind Spots
Always perform a proper mirror and shoulder check before switching lanes. It may seem clear in your mirrors but cars can hide in your blind spots.
Avoid the passing lane and keep in right lanes while driving. These lanes will give you much more room to move or react in case anything unpredictable happens.
Keep Your Car In Good Condition
Make sure you keep up with your vehicle’s maintenance in a timely manner. In order for your car’s breaks and engine to be running properly, standard maintenance must be done. If your car needs maintenance, contact us today!
