Tips for Safe Driving
Passing on the Right - Fox 9 News Investigative Report
Hand Position at 9 and 3
Inflating airbags have incredible force and speed that can easily knock your hands off the wheel if they were in the “10 and 2” position. Move your hands down and out to avoid this danger. This wider grasp on the wheel will also allow for more range of motion during an evasive maneuver.
Increase Your Following Distance
Rear end collisions account for a high percentage of property damage incidents on our roadways today. In many cases, a factor in the crash is drivers failing to leave enough following distance between them and the vehicle they are following. To improve your safety, find a stationary object on or adjacent to the roadway. When the car in front of you passes the object, begin counting. If you pass the same object in less than three seconds, leave more space to increase your following distance. This will allow you more time and space to react to unexpected events.
