We have now turned the page on one of the most tumultuous years in history and while 2021 will present it’s challenges for sure, one that you can work to avoid now is a New Haven auto accident. By taking a few simple steps you can take the fate of you and your loved ones into your hands and keep everyone safe in the new year.
Driving in the winter months can be one of the most treacherous things you can do behind the wheel. With additional hazards like ice and snow on the roads your daily commute or a car pool to practice can turn deadly quickly. That’s why we recommend that you do these three things to keep you and your loved ones safe.
- Drive the speed limit. It can be tempting if you’re late to get to an appointment or just want to get home after a long day, but one of the most important things you can do to avoid an accident, especially a fatal one, is to follow the speed limit. If you can manage to not drive above the speed limit you will reduce your risk of a serious auto accident.
- Wear a seatbelt and make everyone in your car wear one as well. If you do get into an accident wearing your seatbelt will keep you safe and secure in your car and help to prevent a serious injury.
- Keep your tires inflated properly. In the winter months, when temperatures dip well below freezing, tires can get under-inflated and driving on tires with low air pressure may cause unsafe driving conditions. It is more likely that you will lose control of your car if your tires are under-inflated then if they are properly inflated.
There is no way that you can, with 100% certainty avoid a New Haven auto accident, but if you take these few things seriously you will be able to minimize the severity of an accident and you may even prevent it.
