According to the 2020 census, more than 312 million people drive a car or a car to work every day.

With all these on the road, drivers should be careful to ensure that they reach their destination safely. Here are some tips to follow while traveling.

Maintain your car properly

Follow the maintenance schedule recommended in your vehicle’s owner’s manual, regularly inspect hoses and hoses, and check filters, plugs and fluids. Also, make sure the tires are properly inflated and the gas level is full.

Bring an emergency kit

In addition to basics like a first aid kit and battery jumper cables, consider adding Autolite TriGlo safety lights to your car’s emergency kit. Powered by four AA batteries, this compact light does two things: it shines like a flashlight and alerts like a flashlight. In triangular form, the TriGlo light can be used as a flashing light or as a flashing safety triangle to warn oncoming traffic of the presence of the driver.

Fasten your seat belt

When used properly, lap and shoulder belts reduce the risk of injury to front seat passengers by 45% and the risk of moderate or severe injury by 50% .

Know your way

Before hitting the road, take some time to plan your route. Auto clubs like AAA provide motorists with detailed maps and directions to their destinations. Be aware of traffic, building and weather advisories on your route so you can make alternative plans if these conditions affect your driving.

Reduce driver distraction

Traffic, construction and reckless drivers are distractions beyond your control. However, you can reduce the risk of an accident by reducing distractions in your car.

For example, to avoid the dome light used by your passengers, consider a product like the Autolite SpotGlo seat light. This compact, battery-operated light easily attaches to the passenger’s seat belt and easily slides into the webbing for the desired position. It directs the powerful LED light source where passengers need it, without distracting the driver. No matter where you’re going, consider these tips to get to your destination safely. Have a great trip!
