Dos & Don'ts for Safe Driving
Here are some tips for behind-the-wheel behavior that might save you from getting a ticket or from getting in an accident.
DO always wear your seat belt.
DO keep children in tested and approved car seats, no matter how much they beg or plead to get out. If you need to, take frequent breaks so the little ones can stretch their legs.
DO review the official rules of the road for your jurisdiction periodically, and follow them always.
DO follow the speed limits.
DO pay attention when you are driving, even if you are familiar with the area. A surprising number of accidents happen only blocks from home!
DO be courteous toward other drivers.
DO give pedestrians the right-of-way in crosswalks.
DO make room for bicycles.
DO pay for your parking tickets or traffic tickets on time, unless you plan to contest them.
DO keep an emergency roadside kit in your car for bad weather conditions and accidents. A good emergency roadside kit should contain the following items:
12-foot jumper cables
Four 15-minute roadside flares
Two quarts of oil
Gallon of antifreeze
First aid kit (including an assortment of bandages, gauze, adhesive tape, antiseptic cream, instant ice and heat compresses, scissors and aspirin)
Flashlight and extra batteries
Flat head screwdrivers
Phillips head screwdrivers
Tire inflator (such as a Fix-A-Flat)
Tire pressure gauge
Roll of paper towels
Roll of duct tape
Spray bottle with washer fluid
Pen and paper
Granola or energy bars
Heavy-duty nylon bag to carry it all in
DO make sure that your spare tire is in your car and that you have a working jack.
DO make time for routine preventative maintenance on your car. Breakdowns can be dangerous and costly.
DO plan your route out in advance for long car trips. Keep a map or atlas in the car in case you get lost.
AND THE BIGGEST DO OF THEM ALL... CARRY TOM'S FAMILY AUTO CARE'S PHONE NUMBER!!!
DON'T drink and drive. Also, don't get into a car with a driver who has been drinking or using drugs.
DON'T make assumptions about what other drivers are going to do. Just because someone has their turn signal on does not mean they are actually going to turn. Like the rest of us, they may have forgotten that it is on!
DON'T assume that other cars know what you are doing either. Make sure that you use your turn signals and give yourself, and the cars around you, plenty of room to maneuver.
DON'T tailgate other cars, pass on shoulders, fail to yield, run stoplights or stop signs (even if no one else seems to be around), or break any other rules of the road on purpose. If you act like you are above the law when you operate a car, you will sooner, rather than later, find out that you are not.
DON'T play your car stereo so loudly that you are disruptive to others, or so loudly that you are unable to hear train signals or emergency vehicle sirens.
DON'T talk on your cell phone and drive at the same time. If you need to make or answer a telephone call while you are driving, pull over at a safe place, use the phone, and then resume your journey.
DON'T engage in other activities while driving that distract your attention or reduce your reaction time. Eating, changing clothes, or putting on makeup while driving is dangerous. In some states, if you are caught doing these things while driving you can be cited for "driver inattention" and given a ticket.
DON'T treat a car like it is a toy. It is not. Don't use your car to play chicken, race, or give another car a friendly "tap."
DON'T let your emotions and frustrations get the best of you. Don't engage in road rage, no matter how irritating another driver might be to you.
DON'T leave valuables in your car, especially in places where they can be seen, no matter where you are parked.
