4 Ways to Stay Safe Behind the Wheel

In 2013, there were nearly 33,000 deaths as a result of driving fatalities. Many people don’t take driving seriously, but when you are behind the wheel you are responsible for your passengers’ lives and the people around you. The following are four ways you can drive safer on the road.

Plan Your Route in Advance

Many people fail to think through their routes, especially on local trips; however nearly half of all accidents occur within five miles of your home. Before you venture on the road with your car, take an inventory of all the roads that are currently construction sites and those with heavy traffic so that you can avoid these routes.

Get Insurance to Protect You and Your Family Financially

One of the best measures you can take to protect you and your family on the road is purchasing insurance. Auto insurance may help you cover the cost of repairing or replacing your car following an accident. With an insurance company as your financial partner following an accident, it’s likely that you will not have to be without a car for a long time.

Drive Without Distractions

Whether you have been driving for years or you have just started driving, it’s important to pay attention to what’s going on around. Distractions, even those that capture your attention for seconds, can cost you your life. Driving distraction free includes:

  • No cellphones
  • No conversations
  • No eating
  • No drinking

By focusing on driving, you can easily react to changes in the weather and other drivers.

Always Wear Your Safety Belt

Although you have heard it a thousand times, safety belts save lives. People who don’t wear their safety belts are at risk of being thrown out of a car during an accident. Why not take every measure possible to save your life? Your safety belt is a part of your car’s restraint system. Your safety belt and other components of your car exist to protect you while driving, but you have to wear your safety belt to be protected.
