Since we proudly serve San Diego, CA and the surrounding areas, Pacific Honda is aware of how factors, like the many different California terrains and storms, can compromise safe driving. Even though our dealership’s inventory is composed of incredibly safe new and used Honda cars, we still believe that with knowledge comes power, so our Honda dealers always arm our clients with tips on how to stay safe while driving whenever we can. From minimizing distractions to making sure you are prepared for emergencies, Pacific Honda wants to share some advice on driving safely.
When you’re driving, you not only have to ensure the safety of yourself and your passengers, but you also have to make sure that any vehicles or pedestrians in the vicinity of your car also stay safe. Minimizing distractions is one of the most important ways to keep you and others safe. While that text message you have been waiting on all day might seem important, it isn’t worth your life or the lives of others around you. Pulling over or waiting until you get to your destination can prevent a detrimental or even fatal accident.
In the case that you are ever in an accident or have an emergency while on the road, possessing a car emergency kit could make all the difference. Jumper cables, a flashlight, emergency signal light, a rescue tool, and a blanket are all things that should be included in your emergency kits. You can make your own car emergency kit or buy an already pre-made one that will have all of the essential items you would need to survive an emergency situation on the road.
Although having the right tools and knowledge to stay safe on the road makes a big difference in maintaining safety, having a vehicle that comes equipped with useful safety features is also a necessity. At Pacific Honda, we have plenty of vehicles in our lineup that surpass other vehicles in its class for safety. The 2016 Honda Civic, for example, is an incredibly safe vehicle. Safety features include the rearview camera, Honda LaneWatch, and an intuitive airbag system. For an SUV that has plenty of safety features, you should take a look at the 2016 Honda CR-V, which has features like Traction Control, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Lane Departure Warning.
With essential safety tips, a safe vehicle, and regular maintenance at our Honda Service Center, we can work together to make the roads a safer place. When you come to the San Diego, CA area and visit Pacific Honda, you will be able to find a new, used, or certified Honda car that comes stocked with reliable safety features to help keep your mind at ease while driving.
