Van Horn Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Stoughton isn’t just known for our new Chrysler cars, we’re also known for car ownership, service, and safe-driving advice. If you’re new to driving or just need a refresher of safe-driving practices, we are here for you!

Impaired driving: Driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or sleep deprivation are some of the leading causes of fatal car accidents. With the availability of Uber and Lyft, there’s no excuse for driving impaired. 

 

Reckless driving: Disobeying posted speed limits and other rules of the road, as well as weaving in and out of traffic, and cutting off cars that have the right of way are some top examples of reckless driving – which can often result in traffic tickets and hefty fines, as well as potentially dangerous accidents.

 

Distracted driving: If you drive a newer car, odds are you likely have Bluetooth® compatibility in your cabin. If not, you can purchase an aftermarket system that ensures you’ll never need to use your hands to talk or text while driving. 

 

Inclement weather: Rain/storms/flooding can be more dangerous than you’d think. Hydroplaning is a common cause of accidents, so we recommend you slow down when necessary or even pull off to the side of the road if the conditions are particularly hostile.

 

Construction, potholes, and debris: Simply noticing the debris and obstacles isn’t enough. When you’re in a construction zone, it’s crucial that you drive slowly and follow any instructions from signs or workers.
