New Year’s Resolutions for the Safe Driver

By Louisville Personal Injury Lawyer on December 30, 2016

new-years-2017Your daily routine probably goes something like this: wake up, go to work, go home, and then go to sleep. Obviously, there are a lot of details that we glossed over, but at its core this is typically how your day starts and ends. Let’s take a closer look at that though. While you’re sleeping, you’re probably in bed. We spend a lot of time in bed…essentially one-third of our lives! After that, the bulk of the rest of our time is spent at work and home. Typically we spend less time at work and more time at home during the weekends, but this isn’t necessarily the case for everyone. Regardless, most of our routines are made up of sleep, work, and home. However, how do you get from work to home and back again?

Therefore, it stands to reason that if you’re going to make a New Year’s resolution this year, you might as well incorporate safe driving practices into the mix. After all, driving is probably a part of your daily routine, at least in one capacity or another. So, we’ve provided the five best habits for drivers to resolve to commit to this year and beyond!
