As 2018 draws to a close, many people are planning their resolutions for the New Year. Some will set goals to become healthier, save money, or streamline their lives to become more efficient. If you want to set a goal that will affect your day to day and make you healthier and happier in 2019, consider these New Year’s resolutions for safer driving.
Have a Seat Belt Rule
With a seat belt rule, you will not start your car until your passengers of all ages have buckled up. Apply this rule to the family dog by properly restraining him or her, too.
Make Safety a Priority
If you plan to buy a car soon, put safety at the top of your list. With safety technology making big advancements each year, it should be easy to find an affordable vehicle with the features you want. Look for vehicles with driver-assistive technologies like what you’ll find in Ford Co-Pilot 360™,which comes standard on the 2019 Ford Fusion and Ford Edge.
Put Your Focus on the Road
Distracted driving causes thousands of accidents each year.Make it a goal to be focused while behind the wheel. In addition to putting away your phone, promise not to eat, adjust your GPS, or do anything else that draws your attention away from the road while driving.
