Safe Summer Driving Tips near Sacramento CA

Safety First

The most important driving tip is to buckle your seatbelt each and every time you get in a car. Nearly 15,000 lives were saved due to seat belt use in 2016, according to the NHTSA. Proper seat belt usage provides safety and security, so don’t forget to remind your fellow travelers to buckle up.


Check for Recalls

Before you take off for that long summer road trip, be sure to find out whether a safety recall has been issued on your vehicle. If there is a safety recall, your manufacturer will fix the problem free of charge. Check for recalls on your vehicle here: nhtsa.gov/recalls


Sharing is Caring
