Paying attention to the road ahead of you should be common sense when driving, but we all know how easy it can be to become distracted even if just for a moment.

You can ensure a lot more safety for yourself and your passengers by simply putting away your cell phone and other devices the moment you get in the car and keeping your eyes -- and your hands -- off them while driving. Additionally, make sure you've taken care to adjust your seat and mirrors before you engage. The same goes for setting the heat or air-conditioning or tuning the radio dial to your favorite station.

Excess movement in a vehicle is a certain distraction, so make sure your youngest passengers are properly restrained in their car seats and that older ones (as well as pets!) are also buckled in. And while you're at it, secure loose toys or other items that might roll around on the floor. Following these simple guidelines from us here at Diablo Subaru of Walnut Creek should make for a safer, more enjoyable ride for everyone.
