Driver Habits that Increase the Likelihood of Damage

by on Jan.02, 2016, under Safe Driving Tips

The way you drive plays a significant role in your safety and in the condition of your vehicle. Reckless driving is the most obvious reason you get into an accident or damage your car. But, certain things you do regularly may also cause dings, scratches and bumps on your automobile.

This habit comes in many forms, but the most common is mobile phone use. Answering or making a call, texting or playing games put you at risk because your attention is not on the road and the wheel. Eating or drinking while driving is a habit that you must also avoid to reduce the risk of damaging your car and endangering your life.

Most drivers follow the car in front of them too close. This may cause an accident or damage your car when the vehicle makes a sudden stop or turns a corner. Whether you are tailgating or inching closer, you are increasing the risk of a bump. You do not want that scratch on your brand new car. That is why the ideal distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you is approximately two car lengths.

Changing lanes is a routine task while driving, but it may also be one of the riskiest, especially if you lose concentration or if some of your car parts are not working properly. Moving in and out of lanes, failure to turn your blinker on and not checking blind spots may cause a collision, which may result in minor or severe car damage.

If you still do these things on the road, your car might get some dings and scratches. In such cases, you might need vehicle detailing to restore its appearance.
