Road Safety Tips from Bosak Honda Highland

May 4th, 2015 by

Bosak Honda Highland is here with some important road safety tips to keep you safe when you head out on the road. After all, spring is in full bloom, and while many of you have likely had your (or your kids’) spring breaks come and go, it’s only a matter of time before a nice day simply demands you take a joyride behind the wheel of your 2015 Honda Odyssey minivan.safety

Keeping Safe on the Road

Some of these tips could seem obvious, but you would be amazed how helpful an occasional reminder can be.

On the road:

  • Always wear your seat belts
  • Don’t drive tired or distracted
  • Be cautious in work zones
  • Observe speed limits
  • Make regular stops on long road trips
  • Always have your headlights on at night or when it’s raining
  • Don’t let your gas tank get too low, especially in rural areas

Tips for when you have car trouble:

  • Pull over to the side of the road as soon as possible
  • Turn off your vehicle and turn on your hazard lights
  • Be sure not to touch anything under the hood until it’s cooled off
  • Place reflectors or cones behind your vehicle so other drivers can see you
  • Be ready to call for help if you have anything but minor car troubles

When disaster strikes on the road, even the simplest troubles can be tough to deal with, and we recommend packing an emergency kit ahead of time just in case. Non-perishable food items like granola bars and trail mix as well as bottled water are essential, as is a first aid kit, a flashlight, important contact information, and a car and wall charger for your phone.
