Safe driving resolutions are a good alternative to the usual personal health goals most people set on New Year’s. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Maintain your vehicle
Performing routine maintenance goes a long way in keeping you safe on the road. Keep up to date with replacing all fluids and your tires, and keep your car’s engine in top shape.
Don’t use your phone
Glancing away from the road for even a few seconds can cause an accident. Avoid this by not texting or making phone calls while you’re driving.
Learn defensive driving
Defensive driving is the art of navigating the road in a way that anticipates the behaviors and habits of other drivers to deter the risk of collisions before they happen. Seek out a class or workshop in your area.
Drive the speed limit
Everybody speeds at some point. However, a lot of accidents could be avoided if drivers slowed down a bit. Resolve to drive the speed limit more often in the coming year.
Buckle your seat belt
A startling number of people wear their seat belts incorrectly, if they wear them at all. Make sure that you and your passengers are buckled in before embarking on any driving adventure.
If you want to initiate some unique New Year’s resolutions, these driving habit resolutions will help keep you and your passengers safe while minimizing the likelihood of collisions with other drivers.
