Driving safety tips (and other safety ideas) are available from the Naval Safety Center web site at http://ow.ly/Spfu306GvKg. The following are some driving safety tips to remember during the holiday season and year-round.

• Don’t drink and drive. If you plan to drink, plan your transportation in advance.

• Every year, 23,000 people die because someone else didn’t follow this rule.

• Don’t drive if you are tired.

• Keep your car running well. Make sure your tires, brakes, headlights and taillights, and turn signals are all working perfectly.

• Obey the speed limit. In rain, fog and darkness, slow down.

• Stay aware of the drivers around you. If you see an erratic driver, don’t get angry.

• Be careful at intersections. The average American driver is mediocre. Don’t assume others are going to do the right thing.

• Keep your children in car safety seats, and know how to install the seats.

• Drive defensively. Obey the rules and be predictable.

• Use caution at turns. Use your signals.

• Don’t use cell phones while driving, it’s illegal in Hawaii.

• If your car has an anti-lock braking system (ABS) and you must brake because of an obstacle, be sure to press the brake pedal and hold, and gently steer around the obstacle.
