New Year’s Resolutions to Become a Better Driver

become a better driver

It’s easy to form bad driving habits, whether you drive all-day every-day or just a few times a week. With the coming of the New Year, why not resolve to become a better driver in 2019?

Here are a few tips from the staff at Sunnyside Chevrolet to help you become a better driver.

Keep up with regular maintenance

From forgotten oil changes to streaky wiper blades, it’s easy to forget to complete simple vehicle maintenance tasks. Resolve to keep up with your vehicle’s suggested service schedule in 2019.

Use your signals

For one reason or another, not using turn signals to indicate a lane change is a habit that a lot of drivers tend to pick up over time. If you want to be a safer and more considerate driver this year, resolve to use your turn signals every single time you change lanes, whether it’s rush hour or after hours.

Say no to speeding

Keep on cruising in the New Year, but do so at or near the speed limit. Speeding is a dangerous habit and, if you so happen to get clocked by a hidden police officer, an expensive one. It also reduces your reaction time, which can have consequences far greater than cash. Resolve to stop speeding in 2019; instead, try leaving earlier to give yourself more time to get to your destination.

If one of your goals for the New Year is to get behind the wheel of a new ride, stop into Sunnyside Chevrolet and we’ll let you try out the best of what we’ve got on the lot.
