Complete Vehicle Services Paraparaumu Warns To Avoid Distractions On The Road
Driving is an activity that needs not only the proper skills but it also needs the driver to have ultimate and great concentration on the road. Being focused on the activity itself gives the driver and its passengers greater chances of not meeting any kind of mishap, collision, crash, or accident.
Even experienced drivers still meet accidents when they become careless when driving. Taking your eyes off the road for just a couple of seconds greatly increases your chances of meeting a disaster. That is why automobile experts and drivers suggest that the best thing to do would be to avoid distractions at all costs. By avoiding them, you are also keeping yourself safe along with your passengers, other motorists, and pedestrians.
Try not to eat in the car. When you are eating while driving, you tend to fumble around for the food. You could drop it or even try to drive using just one hand. You are also more likely to look down at any spilled food (or drink) on your clothes and that may be enough to have an accident.
Avoid fiddling around with your car’s controls. It could be your radio, your car’s heaters, the air conditioner, or its mirrors. Experts suggest that if you would like to change the status of these controls, it would be better if you pulled over first and do the adjustments once you are safe on the side of the road. While this may sometimes not be practical it makes sense to adjust your mirrors before your trip, and chose your radio station before you pull into traffic. You may be wasting a minute while doing so but remember that you may be keeping yourself alive by doing that.
Mobile phones should not be used while driving. If you want to place a call, pull over first. That way, you can concentrate on dialing the right numbers and listening well on the conversation. If you receive a call, pull over, stop, then connect the call if it is safe to do so. Better yet, have a word to Simon at Complete Vehicle Services about installing a hands-free mobile phone kit. That way you can make and receive calls and not take your hands off the wheel, and keep your eyes on the road.
