Driver Safety Tips

Newly Licensed Teen Driver
  • Never text and drive.  It's too dangerous and illegal in most states!
  • Always use turn signals when turning and changing lanes.
  • Always check over your shoulders to identify blind spots.
  • Don't tailgate behind trucks and other vehicles.
  • Always watch traffic in front of you due to sudden braking and frequent stops.
  • New drivers should drive with hand positioned at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock positions of the steering wheel.
  • Keep the inside and outside of the car clean for better visibility and objects becoming projectiles in accidents.
  • Always come to a full stop every time, people take it for granted.
  • Always pay your car insurance, it's illegal not to.
  • Control your speed when you travel this fall, tickets are too costly!
  • Get AAA card for unexpected emergencies, towing, car rental services, discounts and  much more.
  • Always wear your seat belt at all times. It's the law!
  • Plan ahead for a long ride with small kids.  Make sure to pack accordingly (food, clothes, toys, etc.)
  • Make sure to charge all phone devices before a long trip, purchase and keep an extra charged battery for emergencies.
  • Use GPS for travel destinations, but be careful, this can drain the battery faster. Locate Hotels for extremely long trips.
  • Purchase and keep an emergency kit in the car, which includes road flares, signs, and first aid kit inside. (Pep Boys)
  • Be sure to check all weather reports for your trip and dress properly for conditions.
  • Bring extra money for toll booths during your trip.  Check toll roads along the way before your trip.
