Driving safely seems like it should be a relatively easy thing to do, but there are thousands of automotive accidents in this country ever year that very easily could have been avoided had drivers—yes, even drivers right here in Calgary, AB—done a little bit more to ensure they were using their automobiles as responsibly as possible.
Driving safely is relatively easy, and the following are a few things Calgary Hyundai drivers can do to make sure they’re being as safe as they can behind the wheel:
Pay attention. It seems simple to say, but so many people are distracted by their cell phones, their makeup, or even their lunch to do a good job driving. Keep your eyes on the road where they belong, and you’ll already be exponentially safer.
Be prepared. There are a number of things you can do in your car before you even leave your driveway. Set your GPS destination, adjust your climate control, and load up your favorite podcast, all before you even take the vehicle out of “park.” These are the easiest ways to keep that attention sharp.
Don’t speed. Did you know that if you’re driving ten MPH over the speed limit for a short-to-intermediate commute to work, you’re shaving only a minute or two off of your driving time while adding significant safety risk to you and your passengers, not to mention the risk of a speeding ticket? Mind the posted speed limits and you’ll be a much safer driver.
Of course, on top of everything else, driving great models like the Hyundai Sonata and Hyundai Santa Fe add to your peace of mind thanks to their long list of safety features and strong safety scores. Safety is important to us at Country Hills Hyundai, so we hope our customers are as safe they can be while driving the vehicles they purchase here.
