Safe Driving Tips Everyone Should Know

Focus on driving

  • Keep 100% of your attention on driving at all times – no multi-tasking.
  • Don’t use your phone or any other electronic device while driving.
  • Slow down! Speeding gives you less time to react and increases the severity of an accident.

Drive defensively

  • Be aware of what other drivers around you are doing and expect the unexpected.
  • Assume other motorists will do something crazy, and always be prepared to avoid it.
  • Keep a 2-second cushion between you and the car in front of you, and 4-seconds when the weather is bad.

Make a safe driving plan

  • Build time into your trip schedule to stop for food, rest breaks, phone calls or other business.
  • Adjust your sea, mirrors, and climate controls before putting the car in gear.
  • Pull over to eat or drink. It takes only a few minutes.

Make a safe travel driving plan

  • Secure cargo that may move around while the vehicle is in motion.
  • Have items needed within easy reach – such as toll fees, toll cards and garage passes.
  • Always wear your seat belt and drive sober and drug-free.
