New drivers can benefit from as many tips as you can give them when it comes to staying safe on the road. Once you have been behind the wheel for a number of years it can seem like you were born knowing how to drive. However, if you think back, not only did you take the time to learn how to drive, you likely made a number of mistakes along the way.

Tips for Safe Driving

If there is somebody in your family who is learning to drive or has recently earned their license, below are some great tips from Ken Reaser Enterprises for you to share which can help them to be safe while driving.

Who Are You Racing?

Every new driver is sure that they won’t do it, however, driving competitively is a behavior which can occur all too easily and all too quickly. For example:
  • Trying to arrive at the next intersection first.
  • Cutting in front of other drivers.
  • Always being the first car when merging.
These driving behaviors cause motorists to speed and make mistakes, leading to the potential for serious problems on the road. Instead of concerning yourself with what other motorists are doing, focus on getting you and your passengers to your destination safely.

What’s Your Route?

Learning to manage pedals, change gears, turning the steering wheel, and watching the road for motorists and pedestrians can be quite a stressful set of tasks, without the added worker of trying to read street signs and prepare for exits and lane changes. Before you drive to or through a new area or set of roads, learn the route beforehand. In particular, pay attention for any landmarks you can use to help guide you along with learning about any specific lanes you will need to be in to ensure you can make an exit or take a turn. This can help you to feel relaxd and calm while driving. Click here to buy Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil and improve the performance of your engine with a synthetic oil change in Apopka.

Minimize Distractions

Distractions are something which can happen at any time, on any road, during any weather conditions, and can affect drivers of all experience levels. Because of this, it’s important for all new drivers to take steps to help minimize the chance of distractions occurring during your drive. Each time that you switch on the engine:
  • Switch the radio off.
  • Finish texting and then switch your phone off.
  • Is the car in good condition?
  • Wait for your passengers to become settled.
Consider these four items each time you drive is a great way to reduce the risk of common distractions from occurring.

If You’re Tired, Sleep.

When you want to play a sport, you play sport. When you want to drink, you drink. So it stands to reason that, when you want to drive, you should drive. Not sleep. Being drowsy on the road, even a small amount, can cause serious accidents and is not only irresponsible but completely avoidable. As an example, if you are planning a road trip:
  • Get a good sleep the night before.
  • Use driving shifts to split the task.
  • Find places along the way to stop and refresh your brain and body.
Of course, if you are already driving and you can feel yourself starting to get tired, instead of pushing through, consider safely pulling over and taking a short 15-minute nap to refresh your mind and give you the focus you need to complete your journey.
