The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has just released a summer-themed consumer safety advisory. Road trips are a popular choice for summer vacations, and the NHTSA wants motorists to be prepared for safe and successful trips. Since nothing can ruin a family vacation faster than being stranded on the side of the highway, the NHTSA is encouraging drivers to get their automobiles fully serviced before hitting the road this summer.
NHTSA’s Summer Road Trip Safety Tips
- Regular maintenance
- No drinking and driving
- Buckle up, for every trip
- Protect child passengers
- Put down the distractions
- Observe “Move Over” laws
In addition to regular maintenance, drivers in Asheville and across the nation should be practicing safe driving habits and sharing the road with all roadway users. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident, contact the experienced team at Davis Law Group, P.A. at 888-773-8388.
