Now that 2018 has officially arrived, you’re probably thinking about ways that you can improve your life and the life of your family this year.
At ABS Auto Glass, we not only provide you with mobile auto glass replacement services in Bucks County, PA, but we also supply you with helpful advice to keep you safe.
If you’re looking to stay a little safer on the road this year, we encourage you to avoid these common driving habits to help you better prevent accidents or injuries when you’re driving with friends or family members.
- Put down the phone. Most people know that using their cell phone while driving is a no-no, but a whopping 88% of drivers confessed to using their phone while driving at some point in 2017. Couple that statistic with the fact that something as little as a two-second distraction can leave you at risk of an accident and you’ve got a recipe for disaster. This year, challenge yourself to put down the phone by purchasing a long charging cord (we like the three-meter versions) and tucking your phone away where it is out of reach when you’re on the road. You’ll arrive at your destination safely and with a full battery!
- Add an emergency preparedness kit. If you’ve ever driven in a harsh Pennsylvania winter, you probably already know that blustery winds and black ice can make slipping and sliding off the road a real danger. This year, add a winter emergency preparedness kit to your vehicle. Be sure to include warm gloves, a bag of sand or cat litter, flares, high protein snacks, a spare battery-operated cell phone charger (with batteries) and a crank flashlight in your kit.
- Don’t ignore maintenance needs. Sure, a tiny crack in your windshield might not seem like a big deal now but in the event of an accident, a windshield that’s fully intact can potentially save your life. This year, make a pledge to resolve minor vehicle issues quickly before they turn into more expensive problems later on.
