Cutting Down on Clutter: Cleaner Cars Make Safer Drivers

You know taking care of the interior in your car is important because you don’t want to break down on the side of the road or have your car fail to start on important days. What you may neglect is picking up the trash out of your car or wiping down the windows. Surely that’s not important enough as changing your oil? Dirty cars can mean emergencies just as damaging as engine failure. Here are a few tips to keep Pomona drivers safer through cleaning. 

The Beauty of the Open Road 

Long road trips call for fun songs, rolled-down windows and lots of stops to see the sights. They also call for meals on the go. Keep your meal in a shower caddy, so you won’t have to try to grab your burger out of the bag. To avoid that same burger wrapper flying into your face by an unexpected breeze (or worse, flying into another car’s window), keep a trash bag in plain sight of you. Remember to keep drinks in cup holders until you throw them away.

More Tips 

For a cheaper alternative to an air freshener, you can keep a box of dryer sheets at the ready to keep your call smelling great. That won’t save your life, but it will make your drive more pleasant. You should also be sure to clean your windows frequently — even when you think you can see just fine out of them. You may not have the visibility you think you do, especially if the weather changes.  

Going the Extra Mile

4 Driving Habits All Safe Drivers Possess

Safe driving habits can go a long way in preventing accidents, especially in areas with a lot of traffic. If everyone drove defensively accident rates would plummet, however in the real world this is not the case. While you will never be able to prevent every accident, there are a few things you can do to make yourself a safer driver, such as:

1. Do Not Drive Distracted

This means using a hands-free device in order to call people while you drive, and never texting while you’re on the road. Cell phones cause people to think more about who is on the other side of the line as opposed to what is happening on the road.

2. Always Keep Your Eyes on the Road

In the same vein as not texting and driving, keeping your eyes on the road is essential to being a safe driver. Looking away even for a second may cause you to not see a vehicle stopped ahead, resulting in an accident. Rear-end collisions are almost always the fault of the rear-ending vehicle, which, according to the professionals at THINK Insurance & Financial Services, can result in your insurance premiums going up.

3. Be Aware of Your Surroundings

Someone trying to speed through a red light and hitting you may be entirely their fault, but you can avoid an accident completely by just seeing what is going on. By just knowing what is going on in the area around the road, you can avoid many accidents.

4. Watch Out for Bad Road Conditions

Always drive a little slower when it is raining, or if there is fog since you may have a hard time seeing anything go out into the road, or the vehicle ahead of you stopping.
