Hi, all! Welcome to Fundy Mutual.

We know driving can be dangerous, so we want to give you some tips on how to be safe before you even leave your driveway. This will reduce your risk for distractions while driving and help you prepare for your trip ahead of time.

First, you need to ensure that you’re fit to drive. Have your vision and hearing tested regularly and if you’re prescribed glasses or hearing aids, you should wear them. If you’re on any medications, ask your doctor if it’s safe to drive while on them — never drive when you’re drowsy or upset.

Next, you should adjust your car seat and headrest to prevent injury and improve vision. Make sure you have a clear line of view out of each mirror and that your visor prevents glare. Keep all windows clean and properly maintain your vehicle. If it’s snowing or raining, make sure your defrosters and tires are in good shape.

Remember to buckle up! Safe driving can lead to discounts on your premium.

Thanks for watching and check back for more tips.
