Tips for a Flawless Thanksgiving Roadtrip

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, along with the busiest travel holiday of the year!

If you’ve traveled on this holiday in the past, you know that planning is key to a seamless, relaxing trip, and we’ve got just the list to keep you organized this year!

W Honda - November 16.jpg

  • Stay Connected – Download the latest travel apps for your phone before you hit the road—Spotify is a great channel for music, Waze will help with traffic, and Citymapper will be your best-bet for navigation!
  • Travel Late or Early – Instead of sitting in a huge mess of traffic this year, leave in the middle of the night, or early in the morning to avoid traffic jams—you’ll get to where you’re going much faster, and your passengers will thank you… especially if you have kids!
  • Pack Wisely – Make sure to bring temperature-appropriate clothing, shoes, and coats, especially if you’re heading north or to the mountains!
  • Have Your Car Serviced – Make sure that all of your fluid levels are topped off, your brakes, lights work properly, and that your car is up to date on all routine maintenance including oil changes and tires. Contact our Service Department to set up an appointment to have your car prepared for your road trip!
  • Have Travel Documents on Hand – Be sure to carry your Insurance Card, Roadside Assistance information, and any other vital information, in case of emergency.
  • Make All Stops at Once – If you have children, it might be challenging trying to travel with the constant stopping for bathroom breaks, food, and drinks, but, if you stop in a place where you can use the restroom, grab a sandwich and a bottle of water, all in one place, you’re guaranteed to save time instead of loading and unloading everyone into and out of the car at each place.

Visit us online to schedule your appointment with our Service Department, to ensure your vehicle is up-to-par for your Thanksgiving travel. Buckle up, and enjoy the ride!

Tips to Protect Your Teen Behind the Wheel

The moment your teen turns 16 is exciting, but is also potentially worrisome for parents. As they acquire their driver’s license, they’re well on their path to independence, however, protecting them is still your priority.

But how do you protect them, when you’re not around?

W Honda - July 13.jpg

Here are a few tips to ensure your teen is safe, when they get behind the wheel:

  • Be sure that the vehicle your teen is behind the wheel in is in tip-top shape. Verify the safety ratings on the vehicle, as well as the current condition of the tires, brakes, and engine. Contact our Service Department to ensure the vehicle that your teen will be driving is up-to-par.
  • It might be a good idea to limit the time that your teen is allowed to be behind the wheel; according to an article from esurance, most accidents involving teen drivers occur after 9:00 PM, so, setting curfews could be in their best interest.
  • Limit the number of passengers that your teen is allowed to travel with, to help avoid distractions.
  • Speak with your teen about the dangers of driving distracted, or driving under the influence.
  • Be sure to thoroughly teach your teen about all the features of the vehicle they will be driving, before they get behind the wheel. Ensure your teen knows exactly where to find the switches for the lights, windshield wipers, and hazard lights, in case of emergency.

Driving is an exciting privilege, but could potentially be a very dangerous task. To learn what vehicle might be the best fit for your teen, visit us at WaldorfHonda.com, or contact us today!

5 Common Factors Attributed to Accidents

Although driving is a wonderful privilege, it can also be a very dangerous task, regardless of the endless safety features that come on new cars, today.

W Honda - June 6.jpg

To help keep our customers safe behind the wheel, we’ve compiled a list of 5 common factors attributed to accidents, to keep in mind, the next time you get behind the wheel:

  1. Distracted Driving – Driving while operating an electronic device, whether a cell phone, GPS, or any other device, can prove to be a very dangerous distraction. Taking your eyes off the road, even for a split second, can cause you to miss something, that you ordinarily wouldn’t have missed if focused completely on driving.
  2. Drowsy Driving – We’ve all been there. Life gets busy, and sometimes there isn’t quite enough time for sleep, and then you’re back behind the wheel of your vehicle, on to the next task. Driving while sleepy can slow down your reaction time, which could result in a collision, no matter how closely you feel that you’re paying attention.
  3. Driving Without a Seat Belt – No matter the distance you’re traveling, engaging your safety belt is vital when you get behind the wheel. Although cars today are built with air bags to help protect you in the event of an accident, a seat belt could save your life.
  4. Speeding – Regardless of how long you’ve been permitted to drive, or how much experience you have, speeding is a dangerous habit to get into, and according to a Blog from Road and Track, is the second leading cause of traffic fatalities. Be sure to plan ahead, and give yourself enough time to reach your destination, without having to speed to get there.
  5. Being Unaware of Driving Conditions – Whether it’s snow and ice that we’re experiencing, or rain, staying apprised of weather conditions is an important factor in avoiding danger behind the wheel. Attempting to reach your destination before inclement weather starts is your safest bet to avoiding a weather-related collision.
