AAA Carolina Offers Up Safe Driving Tips

The leading cause of death for people between the ages 5 and 30 is traffic accidents according to AAA Carolinas. The following are some tips for safe driving put together by AAA Carolinas:

  • Pay attention to your time, visibility and space on the road. Always leave three to four seconds of distance between your car and the vehicle in front of you to prevent a rear end collision.
  • Adjust the side mirrors so you can’t see the sides of your car; although this may seem weird at first, it will help eliminate blind spots.
  • Always pay attention to the road and try to avoid distractions such as looking at electronic devices and maps, texting or talking on a hand held cell phone or adjusting the radio or CD player.
  • Don’t drive if you are too tired. Make sure to pull off the road to rest if you are sleepy after driving a long distance. Always prepare for a long road trip by getting a full night’s sleep the night before.
  • Never drink and drive. Driving while intoxicated impairs your judgment and is never a good idea.
  • Be careful when taking prescription or over the counter medications and driving. Medications affect everyone differently and can impair your ability to drive.
  • Check local road conditions before traveling. This can help you prepare for traffic caused by construction and other road conditions so you can choose an alternate route and get to your destination safely and on time.
