Happy Fourth of July From Freedom Honda!
Time for fireworks and fun in the sun! With the holiday weekend just around the corner, Freedom Honda wants you to have a memorable Fourth of July while being safe at the same time. We all know the Fourth of July is a ton of fun, but sadly it is one of the deadliest holidays due to driving accidents. Here are some tips about car safety on the Fourth of July for you and your family.
Road Trip Tips:
Make sure your vehicle is ready for a road trip. This includes checking your tire pressure, oil, and washer fluid! Also put together a road safety kit and bring a map, just in case your phone dies.
You have heard it time and time again: Don’t text and drive! Have your playlist ready to go so your hands can stay on the steering wheel and off of your phone. If you really need to respond to that friend request, kindly ask your co-pilot to accept.
If you’re headed to a Fourth of July party, make sure you have a plan! Whether you have an Uber or designated driver, make sure you do not drink and drive. Keep the roads safe! If you are the designated driver, take your time and drive defensively on your ride home. Hopefully, everyone has a DD like you, but assume that not everyone driving around you may be as safe and smart as you.
This is the time of the summer to sit back and enjoy a fireworks show. However, never stop on the side of the road to watch a firework show. This creates a safety concern for you and everyone else driving on the road. This can also lead to a big ticket from the police. If you are heading home from a firework show, anticipate some heavy traffic. Fourth of July is busy time for travelers so avoid tailgating and aggressive driving behaviors. Remember to be patient and throw on some Uncle Sam classic tunes.
Freedom Honda wishes you a safe and fun Fourth of July, no matter where you’re headed. If you need any services before the big day, come in and see us!
