&amp; Driving Resources: Safe Driving Tips</h1> <p>Driving presents challenges every time you get behind the wheel.&nbsp;Vehicle design safety improvements lessen crash chances but only from a design point of view. Just like guns do not kill unless someone points and pulls the trigger, people crash; vehicles do not. No matter what design improvements are made to a vehicle, the bottom line is that each time you get behind the wheel of a car, you need to have the presence of mind to accept those challenges you face as you rally down the highway to your destination.</p> <p>The smallest distraction can present the greatest hazard. Texting while driving, getting lost in thought, driving while sleepy, speeding, inclement weather, pulling out in front of moving vehicles and not keeping your car properly maintained all contribute to unsafe driving, crashes and fatalities. Night driving presents a whole new set of hazards: being blinded by headlight glare, overdriving your headlights, visibility, deer and other nocturnal animals crossing the road. Even something seemingly as trivial as getting dirt on your headlights can reduce what you see coming at you on the road by as much as 75 percent. Taking a rag and cleaning off the dirt takes seconds and diminishes such unacceptable risk.</p> <p style='margin-bottom:12.0pt'>Click on the links below to get purposeful information to help all drivers, including teens and other  newbies stay safe on the road.</p> <p><strong><span style='font-family:Times'>Car Maintenance</span></strong></p> <p><span style='mso-field-code:" HYPERLINK \0022http\:\/\/www\.epa\.gov\/osw\/wycd\/funfacts\/auto\.htm\0022 \\t \0022_blank\0022 "'><span class=MsoHyperlink>Byproducts of Car Maintenance:</span></span> Vehicle maintenance generates pollutants.
