Every year, millions of Americans make New Year’s resolutions so they can jump into the coming year strong and focused. We think it’s a great idea to extend such resolutions to your driving habits. Here are some New Year’s resolutions we suggest to make your driving even more safe and efficient next year.
- Be timely: Rushing through your life is never the best idea, and that includes rushing to drive somewhere. This adds stress to your day makes you less careful. This year, slow down and try to leave early so you can arrive on time without the haste.
- Don’t use your phone while driving: Luckily, recent innovations in vehicle technology make it so you’re never tempted to touch your phone while driving, but some of us still retain the bad habit of checking our phones. This year, commit to not touching your phone while driving.
- Increase your efficiency: Change your driving habits to be more efficient, such as reducing sudden acceleration and staying near the speed limit. You will save money on fuel that way. It also makes your ride a little more eco-conscious, which is an added benefit.
- Stay up to date on car maintenance: Having your vehicle routinely serviced is the best way to preserve your vehicle in the long term, so stay on top of routine car maintenance this year.
