Stay Safe on The Road with Honda at Keyes Honda

Safe Driving Tips from Keyes Honda

At Keyes Honda, we sell plenty of vehicles that offer the latest technology. Naturally, that includes the latest safety features. This doesn't mean that you can just rest on your laurels, however. There are still some general safety rules that you should follow while driving if you want to make it to your destination safely.

Safety Tips

Our new Honda cars offer a variety of safety features, but changing some problematic driving behaviors or following basic safety rules can make just as big of a difference. Distracted driving is one thing that can pose a big problem for drivers these days. Our smartphones do more than ever, but that can also make them larger distractions! Stay off your phone. Texting or using apps can make you less safe. It's also a good idea to minimize other distractions, like loud music or other passengers. If you're a new driver, it's especially wise to avoid loading up the car with people whose antics could distract you.

You should also obey the speed limit and put a safe distance between yourself and the car in front of you. This gives you more time to react and hit your brakes if need be. Also, pay attention to how other drivers are behaving. Is someone driving erratically, making sudden moves, or seemingly distracted? Staying away from them could help you avoid a collision.
