SAFE DRIVING TIPS

When it comes to car safety, I think most of us don’t check our vehicles as often as we should. I love how simple the NHTSA’s summer driving tips have broken down these 3 simple steps before we begin our summer road trips! So, let’s get reviewing!

Before you go

Before you go, always Check for recalls – Anytime you travel, use the NHTSA VIN lookup tool to make sure your vehicle is recall free.

It’s so simple — just click THIS link and enter your cars 17 character VIN number. The VIN number can be found inside your cars front dash. It’s easiest to see it from the outside of your car!

Here are a few others things to consider checking or having done on your car.

  • Get your car serviced – If you haven’t had a regular maintenance on your vehicle recently, check to see if it needs the oil changed, battery checked, tire rotated, etc.
  • Simple safety check – Check your vehicles tire pressure, fluid levels, wind shield wiper blades and air conditioning.
  • Prepare an emergency roadside kit – A cell phone is the most important thing to make sure you have. That way you can call for help if needed. Some other things to consider having in a roadside kit would be a utility knife, toilet paper, First Aide kit, flashlight, tire pressure gauge, jumper cables and snacks.

Safety First

  • Protect yourself & passengers – BUCKLE UP!! We all know this, but it doesn’t hurt to make sure every one is buckled before turning on the car! Also, if children are in the car, it’s safest for them to ride in a car seat suited for their size and age, and all children 13 and younger should ride in the back seat.

One the Road

  • Stay alert – Don’t cut your time too short. Make sure to plan time to stop for bathroom breaks, stretch and let the kids play, get a snack and drink and return calls and texts. Also, consider switching drivers periodically to help from having a drowsy driver!
  • Share the road – Be aware of the types of vehicles that are around you. The warmer weather attracts many types of roadway users, including motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Be mindful of the types of vehicles right around you and if needed leave more space around you, especially with motorcyclists!
