As a new driver, it’s important to understand the importance of safe driving. Even if you have had your license for a while, it never hurts to brush up on some safety tips. Here are some helpful tips from us at Kinowski Agency Inc. to ensure that you stay safe on the road here in the Amsterdam, NY area, or anywhere:
Safe driving tips for new drivers
1. Follow all traffic laws and speed limits:
Obeying the law will help you avoid dangerous situations and potential tickets. Always pay attention to posted signs and obey all speed limits – no matter how tempting it may be to speed.
2. Avoid distractions:
Put away your phone, don’t eat or drink while driving and focus solely on the task at hand: safely navigating through traffic.
3. Always wear your seatbelt:
It only takes a few seconds and can save your life in an accident. Make sure everyone in the car is buckled up before you start driving.
4. Never drive tired or under the influence of alcohol/drugs:
Driving tired or under the influence puts yourself and others around you at risk for serious injury or death in a crash. When in doubt, call a friend or take public transportation instead of getting behind the wheel impaired or overtired.
5. Maintain your vehicle regularly:
Regularly check tire pressure and engine oil levels as well as brake pads, windshield wipers, and other vital parts of your vehicle so that any potential problems can be caught early on before they become more serious issues down the line.
