Many of us will make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, exercise more, and abolish bad habits. Instead of picking the usual options, consider making some New Year’s resolutions about driving instead. According to the National Safety Council, 40,000 Americans perished in motor vehicle accidents during 2017 (2018 figures aren’t available at this time). Additionally, 4.6 million were injured seriously enough to require medical attention. Here are some ways to help:
- Never drink and drive
- Eliminate distractions while driving
- Drive the speed limit
- Always buckle up
- Maintain your vehicle and tires
Although it may be common sense, if we follow the steps above, the roadway will be a much safer place. Start the New Year out right by committing to driving safer.
