What Are Safe Driving Practices

 

Here at Country Hills Hyundai, we know that vehicle safety technology has evolved rapidly over the years. That doesn't mean that you shouldn't still focus on safe driving practices, though. Whenever you're driving, potential hazards can come out of seemingly nowhere, especially in cities. Here's a few tips that can help you stay safe on the roads around Calgary.

City Driving Safety Tips: When you're driving in cities, there are a few ways to make driving a bit safer. First, slow down a bit. Cities are more densely packed than a highway and you'll frequently encounter traffic signals or stop signs. Plus you have to contend with jaywalking pedestrians, cyclists, and other obstacles that could take you by surprise. If you're driving slower, you'll have more time to react.

In a city, it's also more important than usual to know where you're going. One way streets and congested roads can complicate your trip, so make sure that you know where you're driving to ahead of time. A built-in navigation system can also help you stay on course.
