For all the new drivers on the road, young and old, Westerville Automotive in Westerville, OH would like to welcome you to the automotive community. Here are a few wise words to live by, to make your entrance into the driving world go as smoothly as possible.
The most important thing to remember is staying calm. Driving can be overwhelming at first, with all the different lanes, lights, signs, and drivers around you. Whenever you aren’t sure what to do, other drivers around you are getting irritated, or you make a mistake, don’t panic. Relax, pay attention, and use your best judgment. Stress only makes you more likely to mess up again, so play it cool and don’t get distracted.
Adjust your mirrors correctly, use them frequently, and be aware of your blind spots. Most accidents happen while backing up or bumping into something you didn’t know was there. Learn to rely on your mirrors, and everything will be much easier.
Be confident. We don’t mean to brazenly charge into situations thoughtlessly, but rather stay alert, know what you’re doing, and do it. Second-guessing yourself too heavily can cause upsets in traffic or cause you to do something other drivers won’t predict, increasing the likelihood of an accident. Use simple, decisive motions when you’re sure the coast is clear.
Finally, keep your vehicle maintained; this is where we come in. A poorly maintained vehicle will break down on you, neglected tires will fail or cause your vehicle to underperform, bad brakes are both annoying and make your life more difficult, and the list goes on. The important thing to remember here is to keep up with regular maintenance and fix problems as soon as they arise. Westerville Automotive in Westerville, OH has your back, where this is concerned. No matter what type of car, truck, or SUV you drive, we’ll keep your vehicle reliable and road-ready. Come talk to one of our expert mechanics, anytime.
