New Year Driving Resolutions

January 6th, 2017 by

Coming up with New Year resolutions can be difficult, especially if there isn’t anything in particular you want to accomplish. Driving is a part of most Americans’ lives which makes it the perfect place to formulate a better habit. Here are a few New Year driving resolutions suggested by all of us here at Carter Chevrolet. Stay safe on the roads in 2017!

Don’t Text

If you’re a driver who always has to be looking at their phone, you’re putting lives at risk. Thousands of people die in accidents related to cell phone use every year. Challenging yourself to put your phone down and keep your eyes on the road is a perfect resolution. Not only will it increase your safety, but the safety of others as well.

Don’t Speed

Speed limits exist for a reason but many drivers exceed them at some point. If you do so consistently, you’re practicing unsafe driving that could lead to an accident. Ease up on the pedal for your 2017 resolution.


Many drivers forget or forego maintaining their vehicle. Consult your owner’s manual and do your best to keep your vehicle up and running at peak performance. Schedule maintenance appointments for your car as needed in 2017.
By committing to these resolutions in 2017, you will not only assure yourself of being a better driver, but you will greatly increase your chances of being safe on the road!
