To help you out, our knowledgeable sales team compiled our best tips and tricks for safe driving and avoiding dangers on the road.

Poor Weather Conditions

Heavy rain, snow, or fog can severely limit visibility and make road surfaces slippery and unsafe. If you’re having difficulty seeing due to extreme precipitation, make sure you drive more slowly than usual and be prepared to stop at any moment. However, if the road is icy, hitting the brakes too hard can lead to skidding, so try to slowly and carefully come to a stop if you can.

Distracted Drivers

Accidents can occur at a moment’s notice if a reckless driver is involved. If you noticed someone driving too fast or weaving in and out of lanes, create as much distance as you can and give them space to pass. If you believe the driver poses a threat to others, have one of your passengers dial 9-1-1 to give the license plate number to the authorities.

The best way to keep your vehicle safe on the road is by scheduling regular car care and maintenance. Now is the perfect time to schedule an appointment at our car service center for routine inspections and repairs, so visit our Danbury area dealership today to protect yourself from road hazards. We hope to see you soon!
