Safe Driving Tips

Canadian Towing, Premier Ottawa Tow Services, Outlines Some of the Easiest Safe Driving Tips

Driving a car may be as easy as ‘one, two, three’, but ‘Safely’ Driving a vehicle is a different thing altogether. The most common tip that anyone would receive about safety in driving is never to drink or take alcohol before driving a vehicle. This is to ensure the safety of yourself, your passengers and the other motorists on the road. Aside from keeping away from the influence of alcohol, there sure are a lot more things to be given attention in order to drive safely. Enumerating all of those safe driving tips will probably make an entire book but here are some of them according to Ottawa towing service.

Practicing Safe Driving

Safe driving practices don’t only apply to the things outside of your car, but inside your car as well. Distracted driving is nearly as bad, and often just as dangerous as drunk driving. Never text or read your email on your phone when you are driving. You need to always keep your eyes on the road. If a text simply can’t wait, then it’s important to pull over to the side of the road, when it is safe to do so, and text while your car is in park. Do not have your radio so loud that you can’t hear what is going on around you. If you have children who need your attention in the car, please pull over to attend to them. One second with your eyes off the road can be very dangerous.

Pay Attention To The Road

Pay attention to not only the road, but the cars around you. All too often we hear about the importance of keeping your eyes on the road, paying attention to where you are going, but we rarely are told to watch where the other drivers are going. It is very important to watch what other drivers are doing to see if it will conflict with what you are doing on the road. Watch how straight they drive, look for turn signals, notice the behavior of the vehicle and anticipate where it will go. This will help you avoid accidents as you will be able to alter your course accordingly, even if the other driver is distracted.

Don’t Text And Drive

Do not use your cell phone while you’re driving. The problem lies with our natural tendency to communicate with others no matter what we’re doing at the time. Technology is such a huge factor in our everyday lives, that it feels natural to talk or text while you’re driving somewhere. So, if you can’t make yourself turn off the phone on your own, there are some devices out on the market that can help. One such product, called Key2SafeDriving, is already helping to save lives out on the roads. This device plugs into the OBD port of your vehicle and interacts with your phone to keep you from talking or texting while the car is running (Emergency calls are allowed). All calls and texts are put into your inbox until the car is stopped. This is a great way to hold yourself accountable to driving without distractions.
