We sometimes forget how powerful our vehicles are and about how quickly things can spiral out of control if just one mistake is made.

Many of us have been driving for years, decades even, and because it’s something that we do so often, we often get into auto-polite mode while driving. This is something that must be avoided. When we get behind the driver’s seat of a vehicle it becomes our responsibility to give driving our undivided attention. Doing this allows us to keep ourselves, and any passengers in our vehicle, safe as well as other drivers on the road. It only takes a split second for something to go wrong, and when you lose control of a 2-ton moving block of metal, things can get ugly fast.driver-safety-atssa-east-end-body-shop

The American Traffic Safety Services Association (ATSSA) has begun an initiative called “Toward Zero Deaths.” The goal of this initiative is to unite the federal, state, and local governments with private industry, in order to work toward a single over-arching goal—to annually reduce roadway fatalities until we reach the goal of zero deaths on America’s roadways.

The ATSSA have called out several issues that are in need of improvement, including highway and work zone safety, high-risk rural roads, brightness and visibility of signage and markings and many others. In areas where these have become stricter, there has been a reduction in fatalities.

While organizations like the ATSSA are striving to make roads safer, it’s not soley up to them. We have to remember every time that we get into a vehicle that we have a responsibility to not only those in our vehicles but to everyone on the road.

We know that even with improvements to the roads and giving your driving 100% of your attention, there can still be accident. And when those accidents occur, East End Body Shop is here to make sure that you are completely taken care of. We want to make sure that getting your vehicle fixed is as painless as possible for you.
