Summer Driving

This time of the year is what AAA refers to as the “100 deadliest days,” and what the IIHS deems one of the most dangerous times to be driving.

It is summer time which means kids are out of school either with you throughout the day or on their way to camp!

Summer time means more car-rides to daily activities or vacations! It is important to keep everyone safe for ever ride.

Safety

If your kids are still in car seats or booster seats be sure to make sure they are not expired, yes they expire, and that their weight is appropriate for the seat they are in. Make sure they are installed correctly as 75 of car seats are improperly installed according to Safe Kids World Wide. The guidelines are children under ages of 12 should ride in the rear seat with their appreciate child seat. 

Make sure everyone is buckled up because that can save a life. By encouraging this every time you get into the car it helps you children do it out of habit. Also, when you do it too you are setting the example.

Be aware of your surroundings. There will be more people driving and walking. You cannot predict if someone is just going to cross the street or if an accident is going to happen. 

When you get to your destination never leave your children unattended in your vehicle or around other cars. Heatstroke can occur, and children can wander.

Before you back up or change lanes use your mirrors, backup cameras, and other safety features in your Lincoln.

Abstain from using your phone until you arrive to your destination. In a lot of areas it is against the law to use your phone while driving.
