Driving safely should always be your top concern, whether you're alone or with passengers. Use the following tips to be a better, safer driver:
1. NO MULTI-TASKING
Always keep your focus on driving. Avoid distractions like cellphones or loud music.
2. DRIVE DEFENSIVELY
Expect the unexpected while driving, and be ready for anything. Be aware of what other drivers around you are doing, and have an exit strategy.
3. KEEP HIGH USE ITEMS CLOSE
Keep items like toll cards within easy reach. Do not attempt to reach items that are too far or have fallen while driving.
4. WEAR YOUR SEATBELT
Always wear your seatbelt and drive sober and drug-free. Use ride-share services like Uber and Lyft if you are planning on drinking.
5. DON'T MISS OUT ON SERVICES
Good drivers know their cars, and they keep them in good driving condition. Keep up with regular services and car maintenance, and always have your car checked before a long trip.
There are many more ways to be a better driver, but it’s crucial to know the basics of safe driving and practice them every single time you’re on the road.
