Whether you get behind the wheel of a new Subaru Forester or a Subaru WRX, you can trust that your vehicle is equipped with top-of-the-line safety and security features designed to keep you and your family secure.

Still, the ultimate safe driving comes from the communication between driver, vehicle, and the road, it’s important to know what kind of hazards you can expect and the best ways to avoid them. That’s why our expert team here at Lester Glenn Subaru is bringing you tips and tricks for staying safe when you drive.

To start, if your visibility is limited or if the road surface is slick or icy as the result of poor weather conditions, you’ll want to drive more slowly and be prepared to stop. Stopping abruptly can lead to spin outs and hydroplaning, so it’s important to use control to slowly come to a complete stop if necessary.

If you find your road hazard is actually another driver, don’t get in their way. Allow distracted, reckless, or otherwise dangerous drivers to get where they’re trying to go and leave plenty of space between them and your vehicle to keep yourself safe.

When it comes to navigating busy or congested areas, pedestrians can be distracted, too. Not only is it important to keep a close eye on everything going on around you, but you’ll also want to drive more slowly in town centers and near playgrounds and schools and always be prepared to stop.

Keeping your pre-owned or 2019 Subaru model well-maintained is another important part of keeping yourself safe on the road. Our team here at Lester Glenn Subaru can ensure your visibility is good, your wipers and headlights work properly and your brakes and tires do the job right.
