Toyota Issues Summer Driving Safety Tips

2015 Toyota CamryWe tend to think of those freezing, icy months in the winter as the most dangerous times to drive our vehicles, and while that may be true it's naïve to believe that summer driving doesn't also have some risks. For one thing, there are a whole lot more people out on the open road during the summer months, and thanks to summer breaks from school there are plenty of families that opt to take long car rides to all sorts of locations in Canada and the United States.

Knowing that, Toyota has put together a program called "Buckle Up For Life," which teaches drivers a number of different Summer Travel Safety tips. A little over halfway through June, they've already released two of them, one concerning the installation of child safety seats and one that centers around the struggles some drivers can have keeping their eyes on the road.

The friendly sales team at Charlesglen Toyota believes strongly that both are worth reading, with the first one pointing out that three out of every four safety seats installed in North American Toyota vehicles is installed incorrectly. That article suggests using the "inch test" and "pinch test" to ensure that kids are safe in their seats, though there are several other worthwhile tips in the piece, too.

The other article talks about avoiding the use of a cell phone, eating, or grooming oneself while driving, though fatigued driving can be equally dangerous.

As your local Toyota dealership, we recommending heeding some of these summer driving tips, because your passengers deserve to be as safe as they possibly can. Stop by our dealership today to peruse our inventory of new Toyota vehicles that come equipped with a deep menu of safety features!
