What Can You Do to Be a Better Driver?

- Do you have a good vehicle? – The type of vehicle and condition it is in matter too. That said are you shopping around for another car or truck? If so, doing as much research as possible on potential vehicles is key. This is where using online resources comes in handy.

No matter if you are keeping your current vehicle or buying a new one, be sure to take care of it. The proper maintenance goes a long way in helping you be safer out on the roads.
- Steer clear of distractions – How good of a job do you do when it comes to steering clear of distractions? Too many get caught up with phones, grooming and other activities while behind the wheel. Such activities put them and others at risk. Do your best to stay focused on the road each time you are out there. Remember, no call or text or other such activities are worth your life.
- Staying awake and focused – How many times would you say you started to doze off when behind the wheel? Remember, it only takes a second or two of your eyes being closed to lead to an accident.
