With the impending school year rapidly approaching, our team at your local Acura dealership wants to remind you of some important safety tips. As the school year kicks off, there will be more teenage drivers on the roads, more schedules to meet and more activities to get to, so it’s more important than ever to remind you, your kids and your passengers how important it is to be safe on the streets.

The main thing to keep in mind when you’re behind the wheel is to stay away from distractions, whether it be rowdy and noisy passengers in your vehicle, letting your phone distract you or being more focused on the destination than the time it takes to get there. When it comes noisy passengers, if you can, set limits on noise and volume. When it comes to your cell phone, we recommend keeping it in your bag or out of sight/reach so that you aren’t tempted to check it and let it distract you. Take advantage of systems like Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and smartphone app integration. And always remind yourself to stay focused on the road and the task at hand. Whatever fun activity you’re heading to will be there when you arrive!
