Motor Vehicle Safety Tips
It’s not fun to be involved in an auto accident, and even less when you are at fault or take part in causing harm to yourself or the other motorist in the collision. For that reason, we would like to offer some safety tips which we gathered from around the web.
Distracted driving is becoming a widespread epidemic and a leading cause of motor vehicle accidents. That being said if you have children in the car, first and foremost, make sure they are buckled in safely. Fighting and climbing around a vehicle when you are trying to concentrate can become very distracting.
Cell phones should be put away, only to be used when the car is stopped and in park. Texting is not the only form of distraction, even talking on the phone could take your focus from driving safely.
If you use any medications, please make sure you follow the warning label. Many medications can cause drowsiness and seriously impair your ability to operate a vehicle.
Use caution and awareness as your tool while driving. Be aware of other drivers around you, rather than just yourself. For more information, please visit this website
If you drive a commercial vehicle, or any of the larger vehicles allowed on the road, it’s important to remember that if involved in an accident, it’s more likely the other driver will be injured than yourself. For this reason it’s always good to take extra steps to ensure the safety of yourself and others on the road.
When switching lanes, use your mirrors, but also check your blind spots. If you are driving through a construction area or other road related maintenance, slow down to an acceptable speed. If you are responsible for the upkeep of your vehicle, make sure you are always driving a vehicle that has been properly maintained. If you have cargo, maintain a load that is safe, and within road regulations. Drive slowly around sharp curves, and take note of the weather, adjusting your speed and awareness accordingly.

It can be both fun and worrisome to venture out on your motorcycle when the first hint of warm weather occurs in the spring. You cannot control other motorists, but there are steps you can take to be safe while enjoying a ride in the open air.
Always test the lights, brakes and signals before venturing out on the road. Make sure all fluids are topped off and you have enough fuel to avoid being stranded somewhere. You might check all wires and connections to make sure there aren’t any worn spots that might need replaced. Make sure your chain is properly lubricated. And try to wear the appropriate gear. Although Colorado law doesn’t require you wear a helmet, it is always good measure and can reduce the risk of head trauma in case of a collision. For more information, please visit this website
Accidents can happen while walking or riding a bicycle where other vehicles are present. Needless to say, a pedestrian will fair far worse in a collision with a 2000 lb vehicle. So it’s always a good idea to know how to stay safe while walking or biking around town.
When possible, crossing the street should always be done at a cross-walk or designated intersection. Jaywalking greatly increases your risk of becoming an victim when crossing a street where drivers are not expecting you. If walking/biking at night, carry a flash light, wear reflecting or bright clothing. Dawn is a time in the evening wear visibility becomes very difficult. If there’s no sidewalk to safely stroll, walk on the shoulder of a roadway, and always walk in the opposite direction that traffic is moving. This way you can keep your eye on a vehicle that might swerve off the road. For more information, please visit this website
