No one wants to be involved in a motor vehicle accident. Following some simple safety tips can help make sure you and your passengers stay as safe as possible when you get behind the wheel:

Put the phone down. It is simply not OK to text, surf the web, or carry on deep phone conversations while you are driving. Cell phones are just too distracting, and you need to keep your attention on watching the road and your surroundings.

Plan ahead so you do not feel like you need to speed. Always try to give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination safely.

Obey all traffic signs. They are there for your safety. Always come to a full stop at all stop signs. Never just slow down and roll through.

Make necessary adjustments before you get on the road. Put on your seatbelt, adjust your seat and mirrors, and find your favorite radio station before you put your vehicle in drive. You do not need to be distracted by these tasks on the road.
