The Road To Stress-Free Driving

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - With more than 5 million car crashes every year in the U.S.,  it’s important that drivers understand what they can do to avoid a collision  and also what automakers are doing to help them should they be involved in an  accident.

What You Can Do

• You’ve heard it a hundred times—stay off your cell  phone and don’t even think about texting.

• Work with your car dealer to make sure your tires are properly  inflated, your fluids are topped off and your brakes are well maintained.

• Remember, if you are in an emergency on the road—and  according to Forbes, the average driver is involved in a collision every 18  years—get to a safe place to call for help, give emergency personnel  your specific location and do your best to stay calm.

What Automakers Do

Car companies are including all sorts of new technology in modern cars in  order to keep vehicles in tip-top shape and help drivers who may be involved  in an accident. For example, Hyundai Assurance Connected Care is the new  safety and maintenance suite powered by the firm’s Blue Link telematics  platform. This program provides free proactive safety and car care services  for three years and includes automatic collision notification, SOS emergency  assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, monthly vehicle diagnostics reports  and maintenance alerts. Said Barry Ratzlaff, Director of Customer  Satisfaction and Service Business Development: “While drivers want cars  they enjoy driving, safety features and maintenance reminders are also  important.”
