Automobile Safety Tips

While operating an automobile will never be 100% risk-free, there are steps you can take to reduce your odds of not having an accident.
Don't drink and drive
Drinking and driving is the number one cause of automobile accidents and fatalities in the United States. Laws are in place and you could face stiff fines and potentially jail time if you are convicted of drunk driving. Texting is on pace to supersede drinking and driving as the number one cause of automobile accidents and fatalities amongst young adults.
Wear Your Seatbelt
Studies have proven that wearing a seatbelt significantly decreases one's risk of being seriously injured or killed as a result of an automobile accident.
Don't Exceed the Speed Limit
There's the old saying "Speed Kills" and it's true. Most automobile accidents occur when an individual is going in excess of the posted speed limits.
These four preventable safety violations cause more automobile accidents and fatalities that all of the others reasons combined. If you obey these simple to remember rules you'll increase your odds of staying out of an automobile accident and getting to where you're going safely.
