Always Stay Focused on Driving

As you're planning a trip it is important to ensure that your eyes are on the road at all times. Eliminate multi-tasking and the use of electronics whenever possible. In addition, staying within the recommended speed limit has the potential to decrease the likelihood of an accident so be cognizant of speed markers while you drive.

Drive Defensively

It becomes increasingly important to always anticipate the unexpected which you can do by always being aware of your surroundings. To avoid problematic situations keep a car length of space in front of you. The weather doesn't always cooperate with our plans. For added safety stay under the speed limit when experiencing inclement weather.

Solidify a Driving Plan

Preparation is key when focusing on driver and passenger safety. Try to plan ahead and account for any stops that need to be made along your journey. Make any needed adjustments such as your seats and mirrors ahead of time. If you find yourself feeling thirsty or hungry be sure to pull over if you need a water break or a quick snack.

Engage in Active Safety

Prior to beginning your trip be sure that any bags or additional cargo that you have is properly stored. If an item happens to fall while you're driving don't attempt to grab it while your vehicle is in motion. Finally, always wear your seat belt!
