You might think that driving is a breeze, but there is always news about gruesome accidents on a daily, sometimes hourly basis. Let us give you some tips on how you can drive safer.

  1. Don’t drink and drive

You have heard this a million times but it is definitely the most important. Intoxicated driving can cause fatal accidents and trust me paying for that cab is better than paying for the night out with your life.

  1. Don’t get distracted while driving

Be it your phone, or your makeup, all distractions should wait until you get to your destination and your engine is off.

  1. Check your medication

Some medication can cause drowsiness that can be dangerous when you are driving. Make sure to check the side effects of your medication before the effects kick in while you are on the road.

  1. Drowsy? Get a Friend

Sometimes feeling sleepy on the road is inevitable. But research has shown that having a friend in the car can make you more alert and drive safer.

  1. Always wear your seat belts

Buckle up! Seriously, it saves lives.

  1. Always factor in extra time to get to your destination

Factoring in time for traffic and roadblocks can keep you calmer on the road. Having sufficient time to get to where you need to be will keep you calm enough to drive carefully and without a hot head.
