Driving Safety

Driving a vehicle can be dangerous and there are many distractions that can increase the chances of a potential accident. Your safety behind the wheels and the safety of your passengers should be at your highest priority.

  • Focus on the road and eliminate distractions, especially phones and other electronic devices.
  • Don’t drive when you are tired or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Watch out for other drivers and always be ready to react to avoid a potential crash.
  • When driving in severe weather, plan ahead, give yourself extra time, and pack an emergency supply kit.
  • Keep children safe in your vehicle by using properly-installed and safety-approved car seats or booster seats.
