Another year is arriving, so why not make this next one safer than ever — especially on the road? Whether you’re a young driver who’s just earned their license or a seasoned commuter who’s spent decades on the road, the beginning of a new year is the perfect time to improve your driving. Here are two New Year’s Resolutions for safer driving that we at Hardin County Honda suggest for drivers in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
Remove any distractions
This is an especially important commitment to make in 2022 when more and more people are driving distracted. Put away your smartphone when you’re behind the wheel, and never text and drive. Also avoid adjusting the radio or making a call when you’re driving, as removing your eyes from the road for even a split second can end in disaster.
Slow down at yellow lights
If a traffic signal starts changing from green to red, don’t make it a habit to stomp the accelerator and speed through the intersection well after you see the yellow light appear. Slow down gradually when you near an intersection that has a yellow light, rather than racing to run a red light.
You should make sure your car’s brakes are working well and won’t lock up when you use them. Schedule a service appointment at our dealership to have your car’s brakes inspected. We at Hardin County Honda wish you a happy, safe 2022!
