The excellent safety features in our new Mazda models go a long way to protecting you and your vehicle every time you hit the road. Still, it’s important to know how to take preventative measures and how to react when the conditions are poor due to environmental factors, local traffic, or other dangerous hazards.

That’s why our expert service team is bringing you tips and tricks for staying safe—no matter what the road ahead might look like. The most common hazards to impact driving safety include issues of weather, like slick or slippery surfaces, distracted fellow drivers, local pedestrians who may not be abiding by traffic laws, bikers, and road debris.

When it comes to bad weather, it’s recommended to avoid using cruise control and to drive more slowly than you normally would. Maintain clean and clear windshields and keep a safe, farther-than-normal distance from the vehicle in front of you.

Is there a reckless driver near you? Allow them to pass and give them plenty of time and space to get ahead of you. With distracted pedestrians or children who are playing near to the road, drive as slowly as you feel comfortable and always be prepared to stop.

To keep your Mazda vehicle safe, you’ll also want to pay attention to the road surface ahead to ensure you have plenty of time to navigate to a different lane in the event of an obstruction or object on the road.

These are just a few examples of how you can stay safe on the road. Contact us at Sansone Mazda to learn more or to ensure your vehicle is operating in peak condition. We are conveniently located at 90-100 US Highway 1 North in Avenel, NJ.
