Last week Mobile Mechanic Denver arranged a “Driving Safety Conference” at different Colleges and Universities for the students who ride their cars or bike to their institutions. Teenagers were noted speeding their cars to institutions to avoid getting late but as the legend proverb says, “Speed thrills but speed kills”. It was also observed that many young drivers constantly use their cell phones while driving which reduces their concentration on the road which ultimately results in fatal accidents.
When it comes to accidents everyone knows that careless and bad driving habits such as driving without full attention is really dangerous. There are certain habits that might reduce the risk of getting involved in an accident. Denver Mechanic Colorado shared some practical tips for the students to ensure road safety. Some of them included adjusting side mirrors, avoid using cell phone while driving, avoiding hot cars and etc. Many studies have already proven that using the mobile phone while driving can already four times increase a person’s risk of getting into an auto collision. Whether it is handheld or hands-free, using mobile phones can lower a driver’s reaction and attention similar to those who are alcohol-intoxicated. Make sure you angle your side mirrors to the extent that it can show the flank of the car and road behind you. Safety experts also add to position them so that no mirror part is reflected on it. Side mirrors should overlap slightly the center-mounted rear view mirror slightly. Correctly positioned side mirrors can prevent blind spots when changing lanes that force you to unnecessarily turn your head.
One often neglected distractions when driving comes from the uncomfortable hot car that has been parked under the sun too long. To avoid this, people should simply roll down one of their windows first, walk to the other side of the car and repeatedly open and close its door five times. This simple process promotes proper air circulation, forcing the hot air out. Eating and drinking can distract people and might keep their hands off the steering wheel, especially if they spill or drop something on the floor. Remember that driving using only one hand can decrease the control on the steering wheel.
