These 5 Renault tips for safe driving were designed to be practised and implemented not only by you as the driver, but also as the passenger. So, whether you’re a driver or a passenger, learn these tips and apply them each and every time you get in a car.
Keep the volume down
When your music’s volume is louder than usual, not only can it cause distraction, but it can mute out other important sounds, such as other drivers’ horns, your engine revs etc.
As a safe driver, you always need to know what’s going on around you so that you can make decisions accordingly and keep out of claim’s way. Be sure to keep your tunes at a relatively low volume to not distract you from focusing on the road.
Keep distractions on 0
We all know it and have seen the consequences before – distractions are an ever-present problem on the roads. With the list of distractions growing quicker than we can curb them, we need to do everything we can to prevent them from happening.
To do your part in keeping distractions off the road, make a list of the distractions that you feel you are prone to. Practice ticking each one off the list by making a conscious effort to not fall into the trap of getting distracted by them.
A split second of distraction can cause a lifetime of regret, drive tribe.
Keep the speed low
This one comes as no surprise. Your speed has a directly proportionate relationship to your braking distance. When your speed increases, so does your braking distance. In other words, the faster you’re driving, the harder it will be to stop safely.
When you have passengers, your car will be heavier, and you will have more momentum. This means that your car will take longer to stop, and the chances of crashing are higher.
Keep your speed lower than usual and keep this tip in mind when your passengers hop aboard your Renault KWID express.
Keep seat belts on
Passengers tend to remove their seat belts while the car is motion so that they can move about more freely.
Don’t let this be the case. Create a strict rule, that every passenger that enters your car has to wear a seat belt for the full duration of the trip, otherwise they aren’t allowed to drive with you. Make no mistake, seat belts save lives.
If your passengers are being difficult about fastening their safety belts, there are a couple of games that you could play to get your passengers to wear their seat belts and not take them off.
Keep selfies for later
Something which is becoming more and more prevalent is the act of taking selfies on the move.
This is an extremely dangerous thing to do and could lead to dire consequences in the blink of an eye. What could have been a simple selfie could end up being your last photo. If your passenger wants to take a selfie with you while you’re driving, politely inform them that you will be more than happy to do so once you reach your destination and the car has come to a complete stop.
Once you’ve reached your destination, take that selfie of you and your bestie smiling with your Renault KWID car details in the background.
Your passengers are your precious cargo. You would never do anything to hurt them, right? Of course not. Your driving needs to reflect that and by following the 5 Renault tips for safe driving, it will.
