Middletown Honda wants you to drive safely

So you just got a new car from Middletown Honda in New York and can’t wait to drive it around? Your preferred New York Honda dealer has a few tips on safe driving practices that you should engage in at all times. Driving can be a complex task when doing it for the first time, but we’ve got you covered. A few simple guidelines can help you immensely — even save your life — and Middletown Honda wants to make sure your driving experience is a safe and happy one.

Driving in New York? Keep these tips in mind:
So you’ve got your adrenaline pumping faster than the pistons in your car, and you feel like one of those racers from NASCAR — before you let the excitement of driving your new car for the first time get in the way of good judgement, read these guidelines from Middletown Honda. Below are some good driving habits to get into that can help you save yourself and your vehicle from accidents:

  • Check your mirrors before starting – Check both side mirrors and your rearview mirror before you begin driving.
  • Don’t talk on your phone while driving – While the temptation to answer the phone while driving can be high, it is extremely dangerous, not to mention illegal in some states.
  • Keep your eyes on the road – Whether you are aware of it or not, when you take your eyes off the road while driving, you are often inadvertently steering your vehicle in the direction you’re looking, placing you and your peers in danger.
  • Stick to your lane.
  • Advanced driver training classes – There’s more to operating a vehicle than primary driver’s education classes can hope to teach you. We encourage you to sign up for extra classes. It’ll make you a much better driver and, with appropriate experience, can help you reach a more experienced and comfortable level.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
