If you’ve driven around the Houston area for any length of time, you know how hard it can be to navigate traffic safely. But there are things you can do to help make sure you don’t get into an accident. Here are a few tips that will help keep you safe on the road.
Stay Out of the Fast Lane
Staying in the middle or right lanes on the highway will give you more of a chance to escape if any sort of accident occurs in front of you. It also helps you avoid aggressive drivers who travel much too fast.
Keep Your Car Maintained
One of the best ways to avoid trouble is to keep your car in top shape. That will reduce the chances of having some sort of breakdown that could make you vulnerable to a collision. Keeping your tires rotated and your oil changed will help ensure you stay safe.
Be Aware of Your Car’s Limitations
Observe closely how your car reacts to situations such as taking a sharp curve. If it tends to lean a lot, always slow down. The last thing you’ll want to do is spin out because your vehicle couldn’t handle a turn. You should also pay close attention to how your brakes work, and how long it takes for your car to come to a complete stop when you apply full pressure.
