New Year’s Resolutions for Becoming a Safer Driver
The team at Dick’s Automotive is here to wish you a happy and healthy New Year’s! We wish you and your vehicle only the best in 2020 and the new decade! An imperative part of New Year’s is holding yourself accountable, and the team at Dick’s Automotive is here to help. We have developed a list of four New Year’s Resolutions that will help you become a better driver:
No more speeding. This one sounds relatively easy to accomplish but it is much harder than it seems, especially when you are running late to that morning meeting. These speed limits are posted there for a reason. Try to follow them as much as possible in the New Year.
Don’t forget your turn signals! As we older, we can’t help but become more confident in our abilities as drivers, and we sometimes “forget” to use our turn signals. Not only is it better to be safe than sorry, but other, less confident drivers need to know where you are going, and turn signals do just that.
Put down the phone! This resolution may seem obvious but you would be surprised by how many people don’t follow this important rule. Out of sight, out of mind! Put your phone away in a spot you can’t reach for while driving.
Keep up with regular maintenance. So many expensive and complicated auto repairs could have been prevented with preventative maintenance. You can think of it as bringing your car to the doctors — just like how you need physicals, your vehicle does too! A properly, well-maintained vehicle means you can drive safer.
