With the number of distractions rising, it may be time to refresh when it comes to safe driving. These tips may seem simple, but follow them and you’ll increase your odds of getting from Point A to Point B safely.
Watch Your Speed
Adhere to posted speed limits to ensure that your driving is safe. Bonus: no company speeding tickets.
Drive according to road conditions, i.e. if you’re driving on wet, slippery stripped pavement, slow down.
When you’re driving, be aware of your surroundings. Make sure to check your mirrors frequently.
Haul with Care
Ensure that any trailer or load conforms to manufacturer’s regulations. Make sure you don’t overload your vehicle or trailer.
Focus on driving. Don’t eat, read, or complete any other activities while you are driving.
Go Hands Free
Don’t utilize a cell phone to text or call while you are driving. Use a hands-free device, or if necessary, pull over.
Wear a Seatbelt
You may not be going a far distance, but seatbelts still matter! Stay safe and buckle up!
