Driving Safely

Whether you’re driving alone or with passengers, safety should always be a primary concern. Safe driving habits like limiting distractions and using defensive driving tactics can help you avoid accidents and may even save your life. Follow these safe driving tips whenever you’re on the road:

  • Focus on driving and keep 100 percent of your attention on the road.
  • Be aware of what other drivers are doing.
  • Always wear a seatbelt and operate the vehicle sober and drug-free.
