by Sarah Lomas
The New Year is upon us and that means one thing – promises that you just won’t keep!
Every year people say they’ll lose weight, stop smoking or tick something off their bucket list, only to give up after a few weeks. But what about changing your driving habits? Just a few small changes can make a big difference.
Here are 5 things to help you work towards being a model motorist:
1. STOP SPEEDING
Admit it, we all do it occasionally. We know we shouldn’t. So quit it! Whether it’s bombing down the motorway at 80mph or whipping around streets at 40mph, you’re putting both yourselves and others in danger. Speed limits are there for a reason. So this year, make a change to be a safer driver. It’ll also save you money in fuel!
2. CUT ROAD RAGE
Yes, there are some idiots on the road, but don’t be one of them! Someone cuts you up, so what? Don’t stoop down to their level, just keep a calm head and carry on your way. Is it really worth getting stressed about? Just relax, there’s no need to get so heated up.
3. START INDICATING
It’s just one little hand movement, is it really that hard to indicate? It’s just being lazy. But it can also be extremely dangerous, as other road users have no idea when or where you’re turning. It’ll make your life and every other road user’s life much easier if you just indicated.
4. BE FRUGAL
Lots of people want to save money as they move into the New Year but forget about their car.
