For Safe Driving
The following pages explain your vehicle?s safety features and how to use them
properly. The safety precautions below are ones that we consider to be among the
most important.
Important Safety Precautions
Don?t Drink and Drive
?
Alcohol and driving don?t mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to
changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink.
So don?t drink and drive, and don?t let your friends drink and drive, either.
Pay Appropriate Attention to the Task of Driving Safely
?
Engaging in cell phone conversation or other activities that keep you from paying
close attention to the road, other vehicles, and pedestrians could lead to a crash.
Remember, situations can change quickly, and only you can decide when it is safe
to divert some attention away from driving.
Control Your Speed
?
Excessive speed is a major factor in crash injuries and deaths. Generally, the higher
the speed, the greater the risk, but serious injuries can also occur at lower speeds.
Never drive faster than is safe for current conditions, regardless of the maximum
speed posted.
Keep Your Vehicle in Safe Condition
?
Having a tire blowout or a mechanical failure can be extremely hazardous. To
reduce the possibility of such problems, check your tires? pressure and condition
frequently, and perform all regularly scheduled maintenance.
Important Safety Precautions
Some states, provinces and territories prohibit the
use of cell phones (other than hands-free devices)
by the driver while driving.
