Pledge to be a Safer Driver in the New Year: Troncalli Encourages Making a List of Safe Driving Resolutions

Atlanta-area drivers pondering potential resolutions for the New Year may want to put "be a safer driver" at the top of their list. Troncalli, the Atlanta-area car dealership specializing in Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram and Subaru vehicles, says it's a good idea to revisit a list of "safe driving resolutions" every year for the safety of everyone on the road. At a minimum, everyone's "Safe Driving Resolutions" should include:

  • I will not text and drive. One out of every four accidents in the U.S. is caused by texting while driving
  • I will not talk on my cell phone with one hand while trying to drive with the other. Cell phones are involved in 1.6 million accidents each year.
  • I will not let myself get "road rage." If another driver does something to upset you, take a deep breath, count to ten, or even pull over if you need to in order to calm down.
  • I will not tailgate. At a minimum, stick the "two second rule" when following behind another car. Pick a signpost or other marker ahead on the road and make sure at least two seconds goes by between the time the car ahead of you passes the marker and you do.
  • I will exercise caution and use my signal light when changing lanes. Drivers not paying attention to their blind spots is a major cause for "in-traffic" accidents. Make sure to use your directional signal light and look behind your left or right shoulder before changing lanes.
  • I will avoid speeding. ESPECIALLY in school zones.
