- Always keep your tires properly inflated and check to be sure there is enough tread left on your tires.
- If you are going to be consuming alcohol or drugs, be sure you have a safe way to get home. NEVER drink and drive or drive under the influence of marijuana or other drugs.
- Always wear a helmet when riding a motorcycle, even in states that do not have universal helmet laws. Wearing a helmet is the single best way to prevent deadly traumatic brain injuries.
- Always wear your seatbelt when driving or riding as a passenger in a car. Seatbelts save lives each and every day. From 2004 to 2008, more than 75,000 lives were saved by seatbelt use.
- Keep your attention on the road at all times. Never use a cellphone to talk or text while driving—it can wait. Keep your cellphone in your glove box if you are tempted to use it while in the car.
- Know where you are going ahead of time. Look at a map and decide the best route to take to arrive at your destination safely. Waiting until you are in the car and driving is the worst time to begin looking for directions.
- If you ride a motorcycle, consider investing in some heavy duty riding gear to protect your eyes, face, and skin. This can prevent devastating road rash injuries from occurring.
- Use your headlights even in the daytime. This will allow other cars to see you on the road, even in nice weather.
- Change your wiper blades frequently. Rainstorms can come on suddenly. If you are caught in a rainstorm without good windshield wipers, you may find that your vision is impaired and reaction time slower. Be sure to replace your wiper blades on a regular basis.
