If you have a busy family or work life you may find that you spend a lot of your time in the car. You may be travelling to and from sports practice, on the road for work, or out and about at the weekends, the possibilities are endless. It is wise to get your car checked and serviced regularly for safety. There are also other ways you can maintain and add a level of safety to your car and peace of mind for yourself and your passengers:-
Texting, talking and looking at your phone whilst driving can have tragic and devastating consequences. Prevent the distraction of looking for your phone by having it securely fitted to your dash. You can purchase phone holders, which adjust to any model and can sit safely on the dash without impeding vision and are also a great idea for GPS apps. For extra safety you can purchase full hands free kits to talk safely whilst driving without holding your phone.
Check your boot and glove box and ensure that you have all you need incase of a breakdown. There are some great safety tools on the market, but if you want convenience, look for a multi-tool. Specific emergency kit items should be a bright torch so you can see in the dark and a red, flashing beacon to alert drivers of an emergency.
Every driver has a blind spot, so to avoid accidently running over the kids bikes in the driveway or not seeing an oncoming car, it is wise to invest in a blind spot mirror which simply attaches to you side mirrors to give you extra scope of vision and eliminates blind spots.
Protect yourself and your family with some simple car safety tools. Enjoy being on the road and exploring in safety!
