  1. Put an End to Distracted Driving

Nearly eight people perish every day in the United States from distracted driving. That’s a lot, considering distracted driving is entirely preventable.

Distracted driving refers to any activity that takes your full attention away from the road. According to the DMV, distracted driving includes:

  • Changing the music
  • Checking email
  • Posting to social media
  • Reaching for something
  • Using an app
  • Taking a photo
  • Putting on makeup
  • Eating and drinking

If you’re guilty of any of these, make it a goal for the new year to do your part in keeping our roads safe and put an end to distracted driving.

  1. Don’t Neglect Maintenance

You want to make sure that your vehicle lives to see another year, so change the oil, check the tire pressure, top of the fluids, and rotate the tires. If you notice a check engine light, take your car to a technician right away. Routine maintenance and attentiveness to changes will keep it running smoothly every day.

  1. Be Courteous to Other Drivers

Traffic is frustrating, and it tends to get the best of even the most relaxed drivers. Anyone who has experienced construction in the DFW can relate. It’s easy to get overwhelmed and even experience road rage that can potentially cause accidents. Make it a new year’s resolution to be courteous and patient with other people you share the road with.

  1. Help the Environment

Did you know that washing your car at home wastes a ton of freshwater? Anywhere from 40-140 gallons to be exact. Plus, all that water is polluted with chemicals and runs straight into our storm drains, which eventually ends up in our lakes, rivers, and streams.

Washing your car at Tommy Terrific’s Car Wash can help! We use state-of-the-art equipment, pH-balanced, biodegradable shampoos, and efficient water reclaims systems that capture 99% of the water used in our wash process to minimize our environmental impact.
