SAFE DRIVING PRACTICES
Last year about 43,000 Americans died in automobile accidents. Of these, about one-third are caused by aggressive driving.
When you’re feeling stressed, don’t take it out on others by driving aggressively. It just spreads the stress to other drivers.
Learn to be patient. Avoid practices that other drivers might view as aggressive.
About one-half of collisions are at intersections. Some of these are caused by running red lights, not stopping for right hand turns, or failing to yield the right of way.
It’s OK to give the other driver a break and a brake.
Feeling drowsy? Avoid an accident by taking a break from the drive. It may be time well spent.
Distractions cause about 25% of all traffic collisions. What am I trying to say here? Don’t use your cell phone while driving!
When traveling with children, be sure they are secure before you start driving. Adjust your seat, mirrors, radio, etc. before you pull into the street.
It’s hard to believe we still need to say this, but: never drink and drive!
Keep your driving record clear by avoiding accidents and using common sense driving practices.
