Driving safely is essential for anyone who takes the wheel, but it can be especially important for new drivers to practice safe driving habits here in the Commerce, GA area.
Here are some tips from us at Commerce Insurance Agency to help make sure you’re driving as safely as possible:
1. Always Wear Your Seatbelt
This is a must for everyone in the car. Wearing a seatbelt doesn’t just keep you safe; it also prevents you from being fined by law enforcement if you’re pulled over or involved in an accident.
2. Obey Traffic Laws
It can be easy to forget about traffic laws when you’re just starting out, but following them is essential for keeping everyone on the road safe. Make sure to obey speed limits and pay attention to traffic signals and signs.
3. Avoid Distractions
Take your eyes off your phone while driving and focus on the road ahead. Don’t try multitasking and don’t let passengers distract you either. By avoiding distractions, you reduce your risk of getting into an accident or causing one yourself.
4. Drive Defensively
Be aware of other drivers around you and anticipate their moves so that if something unexpected happens, you have time to react appropriately and safely.
5. Check Your Blind Spots
Making sure all lanes are clear when turning or changing lanes is important at any time, but especially when you’re just starting out with less experience behind the wheel than more experienced drivers have had time to develop over years of driving experience.
