Saturday, April 29th, 2017 by | Posted In: Auto Accidents

Connecticut auto accidents happen everywhere. Whether you commute on one of the interstate highways or prefer to drive on backroads, defensive driving in Connecticut is a must. Below are eight tips to safer defensive driving.

  1. Use your eyes. Driving requires you to be attentive at all times.
  2. Know your car. Being comfortable with how your vehicle handles, brakes and accelerates is important.
  3. No tailgating. Keep plenty of distance between yourself and the car in front of you or you may end up in a Connecticut auto accident.
  4. Be smooth. Braking excessively and accelerating quickly will quickly put other drivers on edge.
  5. Follow posted speed signs. Failing to do so can put other drivers at risk and get you a speeding ticket.
  6. Ditch the phone. Using a handheld mobile device while operating a motor vehicle is unlawful in Connecticut, not to mention a big distraction.
  7. Use information systems responsibly. Do not be distracted by the high-tech information systems loaded in new vehicles.
  8. Do not overestimate new safety technology. Do not replace vehicle technology for remaining attentive behind wheel.
