3 Safety Driving Tips for New Drivers


Did you just receive your driver's license, or are you preparing to take your driver's test? If so, you might be excited to get out on the road. Learning how to drive can be a rewarding experience, and there's nothing like having your first driver's license. At Piazza Subaru of Limerick, we know that drivers have a responsibility to remain safe and obey traffic laws.  Therefore, we've come up with three safety driving tips for new drivers to make sure that they get on the road with as much helpful information as possible.

1. Get acquainted with your vehicle.

Before you get behind the wheel, it's important for you to feel comfortable with your car. You'll want to familiarize yourself with all of the controls on your car, and you'll also want to make sure that all of the major components are working correctly. Check the lights, the turn signals, and the hazard lights. If you are in the market for a new car and are thinking about purchasing a Subaru Legacy in Montgomery County, then come check out Piazza Subaru of Limerick and find out what we have that might work for your particular budget. We're a dealership that offers great prices on both new and used Subarus, and we also make it a priority to keep all drivers-and especially new drivers-safe on the road.

 

2. Invest in a car safety kit.

It's important to keep a safety kit inside your car at all times. The following is a brief list of what you should have in your car's kit: flashlights and batteries, jumper cables, road flares, tire iron, oil, windshield-wiper fluid, coolant, kitty litter, and a tire iron. Having these items inside your car at all times will ensure that you are as prepared as you can be in the event of a break-down.  Especially since some roads are not highly traveled, it is helpful to have all of these in your vehicle to ensure that you can take care of a situation when needed. It isn't a bad idea to keep a blanket along with a few snacks inside your trunk, too. Keep your cell phone handy, as well.

 

3. Get off your phone.

You have probably already been warned of the dangers associated with using a cell phone while driving. Even if you consider yourself an amazing multitasker, distracted driving is a real problem, and it's best to keep your phone out of your hands when you're behind the wheel. It's important to save all of your concentration for the road and deal with your texts and phone calls when you're parked somewhere safe. Unfortunately, too many people have already lost their lives by texting on their phones while driving.
