You Need to Break These Bad Driving Habits

Last Updated:

Auto insurance rates in Ontario are expected to experience very large increases in the next few years. Think over 15 per cent!! Don't give insurance companies any more reasons to increase your rates by being a safe driver and avoid accidents altogether.

As drivers get more comfortable on the road, it can be easy to slip into bad driving habits. A few of the most common bad driving habits include:

Using your phone while driving

Whether you're texting or scrolling through your social media feeds, phones have become one of the largest driving distractions. When driving, either put your phone away to avoid any temptation, or try utilizing your phone's "Do Not Disturb" or "Safe Driving" features to limit any noise or vibrations that could cause you to get distracted while on the road.

Failing to signal

When merging into another lane or making a turn, it's imperative that you signal before performing the action. Failing to so do can confuse nearby drivers, which can lead to a serious collision.

Driving with no seat belt

Wearing your seat belt is the easiest way to stay safe when you are out on the road.
