Summer Driving Safety Tips

Fiesta (3)

These next few months will see the streets, roads and highways packed with more vehicles than ever before. The weather is nicer, the kids are out of school, vacations are scheduled, summer road trips are planned. But before you hit the road, it is important that you check your vehicle and review summer driving safety tips.

  • Conduct a basic safety check of your vehicle. Check the levels of your fluids: oil, antifreeze and windshield wiper fluid. Check your tire pressure, wiper blades, lights, and A/C.
  • If you have children, be sure you're aware of heatstroke concerns that arise in warm weather. Never leave a child unattended in a vehicle.
  • Remember to share the road with other motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians. It will be crowded out there, so be aware of people who may not see you.
  • Have an emergency roadside kit stocked with a car charger for your cell phone, a first aid kit, flashlight, flares, jumper cables, gloves and blankets, and tools. 
  • Be sure to have an updated GPS on hand (or a physical map or atlas, if you're so inclined) for your designated navigator to guide you safely to your destinations.
  • Don't forget water and snacks, and even entertainment for the passengers. Build a playlist of road trip songs, tablets with downloaded games, and a pillow to stay comfy.

Affordable, Safe Vehicles for Teen Drivers

    Most teens are obsessed with getting a drivers license. Upon passing the test, obsession shifts to a car.

    Most teens aren't able to make enough money to handle a monthly payment on a new car. And parents' have plenty of expenses as it is.

"Now I don’t know about you, but I’m plowing all the money I can into a 529 plan, dropping a Bentley payment every month in after-school programs, early morning dropoff and ski club, and let’s forget about Christmas shopping for a moment...

"If you’re Bill Gates, by all means, spend lavishly, but for the rest of us with jobs, mortgages and an ever ballooning health care commitment every year, there’s a balance to be struck." (BestRide)

     What are parents to do? Driving kids to friends' houses, to soccer practice or to the mall gets old - for both parties involved.

    BestRide puts the situation in perspective: "So, yeah, it’s appropriate to get your kid some kind of transportation, unless you (A) want to be driving them all over creation for the rest of your life or (B) trust somebody else’s idiot kid to drive better than your idiot kid."

    Looking for an appropriate car for a teen driver can be daunting. Parents want their child's vehicle to be safe, but also spend a reasonable amount of money. Luckily, there are great used cars with outstanding safety ratings to appease both parent and teen.

"IIHS is known for its ratings of new vehicles, but for many families, a 2015 TOP SAFETY PICK or TOP SAFETY PICK+ isn't in the budget for a teen's vehicle. In a national phone survey conducted for IIHS of parents of teen drivers, 83 percent of those who bought a vehicle for their teenagers said they bought it used."
