Safety Tips to Observe While Driving

While driving can be fun, exhilarating, and freeing, it poses some risks. At Lincoln Township Motors in Beamsville, Ontario, we prioritize safe driving. Take a moment to review some tips to ensure you're safe while driving.

Top Tips For Safe Driving

Wear the Safety Belt

If a crash happens, a safety belt can save your life. For this reason, it's important always to secure the safety belt as soon as you get in the car.

Keep Your Phone Away

Looking at a phone screen takes your eyes off the road and can be very distracting, leading to serious accidents.

Watch Your Speed

Speeding may be tempting, but it can quickly lead to loss of control. Speed limits are in place to keep you, your passengers, and everyone else on the road safe.

Be Careful With the Weather

Bad weather can decrease visibility and make driving stressful. Use your headlights during foggy, rainy, or snowy weather and take extra precautions to lower your speed to match the driving conditions.

Always Signal When Overtaking or Changing Lanes

Signaling to let other drivers know your intentions can prevent accidents. To ensure your signals are functioning properly, visit our Service Centre to check for faulty lights.

Don't Drive Under the Influence of Alcohol or Other Drugs

Drugs and alcohol can affect your judgement and reaction time. Things can happen quickly while on the road, but being under the influence means you might not be able to react quickly, and this can lead to a crash.

Avoid Distractions

It's always best to keep your eyes focused on the road while driving. Avoid distracting activities, such as watching videos that take your eyes off the road.
