Safe Driving Tips From BMW of El Cajon

Here at BMW of El Cajon, our team understands that with school starting just around the corner, that there will be a lot of drivers out on the road! Nothing makes our team happier than seeing local Southern California drivers heading out to cheer on their school or team in their new BMW model. Our team wants to ensure that we’re providing each and every one of our drivers with safe and reliable new BMW models, such as the 2016 BMW X1, which was recently named a Top Safety Pick+ honoree by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety!

With the start of the new school year and the flurry of activities that come with it, our team wanted to remind our drivers of a few safety tips and considerations to have when you’re out there on the road. For starters, always remember that it’s important to limit the number of distractions in your vehicle. Whether it be noisy and excited young kids or exuberant passengers, try to set limits to the amount of noise and chaos in your vehicle. One way that we recommend doing this with children is by having an activity or car game planned or allowing them to watch a show to keep their excitability at bay. Secondly, while we know that there are schedules to keep and classes to get to, nothing is more important than driving safely and following the rules of the road. It’s worth getting a tardy if it means that you’re driving within the speed limit and in a controlled manner because this means that you’re keeping yourself, your passengers, and other drivers safe as well.

Lastly, it’s crucial to not let your cell phone distract you while you’re behind the wheel. Take advantage of your BMW model’s connectivity systems such as Bluetooth or its voice control and smartphone app integration features. If need be, stow your phone in a place that you can’t see it or let it distract you. Here at your BMW dealers serving San Diego, CA, our entire lineup of new BMW models is equipped with a number of advanced connectivity features to help you stay connected to the world outside of your vehicle, while keeping everyone inside it safe and secure. The 2016 BMW 2 Series and 2016 BMW X1 are both great examples of the safe and reliable vehicles that we offer. Both were named Top Safety Pick+ designees and both feature a number of advanced safety options such as night vision, frontal and pedestrian collision warning and more!
