Do you still need a resolution for the new year, but don’t want to go with the typical goal of hitting the gym? Car safety resolutions are not only a great idea for making a goal for 2018, but they’re smart, too.
Don’t Use Your Phone While Driving
So many drivers do it: you figure it won’t hurt to respond to a text really quickly, or you have to look through your contacts for a certain phone number you forgot to call. The fact of the matter is that accidents caused by distracted driving only take a few moments of not paying attention to occur, resulting in split-second disaster.
Drive the Speed Limit
In one-third of fatal crashes, speeding was a critical element. Oftentimes, deaths could have been avoided if the driver had not been driving at high speeds. Protect your passengers by obeying the law.
Always Yield to Cyclists and Pedestrians
Did you know 13% of vehicle-related deaths every year happen to pedestrians? Keep an eye out around crosswalks and yield to anyone crossing the road.
Stay Up to Date on Maintenance
If you tend to fall behind your car’s routine maintenance schedule, now’s the time to play catch-up and make sure your vehicle is in proper working order.
Setting car safety resolutions helps you and your loved ones stay safe on the road.
