Online Originals

GREENVILLE, N.C.(WNCT) With Phase 2 of the re-opening beginning, more people will be back on the roads.

Here are some safety tips to remember while driving.

  1. Buckle up! – don’t begin driving until everyone in your vehicle has their seat belt on.
  2. Follow the posted speed limits – speeding can put yourself and others around you at risk.
  3. Don’t hang your face mask in your review mirror – it will obstruct your view.
  4. Don’t use your phone while driving! – distracted driving could end your life or someone else’s.
  5. Don’t drink and drive! – designate a sober driver or call a car service.
  6. Keep 3-4 seconds of distance between you and other vehicles – this allows safe stopping time.
  7. If you’re traveling make driving plans ahead of time – you know where you’re going and can stay safe on the highway.
