The holiday season is a time to extend greetings and good cheer to everyone. That includes fellow drivers! The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas the most traveled in the entire year, with no signs of slowing down. It’s important to stay safe when you’re behind the wheel, and at our Ford dealership serving Delphos, we have a few ways to make sure your drive is as safe and pleasant as possible!
Ditch the Distractions
With modern automotive technology like Ford SYNC 3 and Bluetooth streaming, it’s never been easier to have a distraction-free drive. You can use voice recognition features to place and answer calls and take advantage of steering wheel-mounted controls to engage your audio system without taking your hands off of the wheel (or bestow the honor of audio controls to your favorite passenger with the most trustworthy taste in music). This is key to staying safe behind the wheel, especially when you’re transporting a car full of excited children and holiday cheer.
Make sure you also take advantage of Ford’s advanced safety features when you travel around Delphos this holiday season. Available tech such as a backup camera, Lane-Keeping, and the Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Alert increase your awareness, which is especially valuable during the winter holidays, when you may be driving through inclement weather.
The Power of Politeness
Yes, you may be stuck in traffic. Yes, you may be frustrated, hungry, or aggravated. However, politeness is essential to keeping safe on the road- especially when you have passengers. You’re just a road rage incident away from an unfortunate accident! To that end, remain respectful of other drivers at all times. A good way to stay calm and collected is to tune into available SiriusXM Satellite Radio or any of the audio apps. Put on your favorite podcasts so you and your passengers can be regaled by comedians, short stories, or pop culture enthusiasts.
This time of year is about spreading goodwill and peace. Why should that change once you hit the road? If you’re looking for a ride that will certainly keep you in good spirits this season, visit our Ford dealership serving Delphos. We’ll be happy to find the perfect Ford for you!
