Distracted driving is becoming an epidemic in the United States. Talking and texting while driving, looking away from the road to change a radio station, eating and drinking, grooming, turning your head to talk to someone in the backseat, and other distractions lead to thousands of fatalities and serious injuries each year.
Take The Safe Driving Pledge
Rick Case Honda, your premier Honda dealership near Ft. Lauderdale, enthusiastically supports this critical driver-safety program. We encourage everyone to visit the http://www.nsc.org website or the Department of Transportation’s Distraction.gov website and sign up for the “Take Back Your Drive Pledge.”
By doing so, you are committing to practicing safe driving by keeping your attention and focus entirely on the road. You’ll agree never to text or talk on the phone, check emails, or update your social media while driving. You’ll be a good passenger and speak up if someone is driving distracted, and you’ll encourage others, including friends and family to drive distraction free.
Put Your Safety First in a Honda
Rick Case Honda proudly sells some of the safest cars on the road today. Hondas consistently rank at the top of the NHTSA and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) vehicle safety rankings. Many Honda models have received the 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick + and NHTSA 5-Star safety ratings. In fact, Honda was the first automaker to develop pedestrian crash test dummies, used to simulate the human body in a collision.
Honda employs an array of cutting-edge features designed to reduce distracted driving by making it easier for drivers to access certain technology features, such as Bluetooth®, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® by using their voice or by fingertip steering wheel controls. Some of these features let you do things such as have your text messages read to you or receive turn-by-turn navigation instructions. However, no matter how convenient, using these features is no substitute for driving responsibly and carefully.
If you need to make or take a call, program a destination into the navigation system, select a music playlist, or check social media, the best thing to do is to either pull over and stop, program these functions before driving, or wait until you reach your destination.
The Latest in Honda Safety Features & Advancements
Honda’s commitment to driver safety extends beyond the convenience of voice-activated controls to help prevent accidents from happening in the first place. Alerting drivers to potential hazards such as a vehicle approaching a blind spot when changing lanes, avoiding a possible collision with the car ahead of you, or accidentally drifting out of your lane help to keep you, your passengers, and our highways safer.
These many advanced available safety features are all part of Honda’s exclusive Honda Sensing™ safety technology suite. Honda Sensing uses strategically placed radar and optical sensors to create an invisible electronic shield around the vehicle. Key features of the Honda Sensing safety suite include Lane-Departure Warning Lane-Keeping Assist Road Departure Mitigation Adaptive Cruise Control Forward-Collision Warning, and Collision Mitigation Braking. Additionally, Honda was one of the first automakers to offer a rear multi-view backup camera with sight lines.
Hondas also have many other passive safety features including its exclusive ACE™ Body Structure that is a high-strength steel cage that’s designed to distribute the energy of a frontal collision evenly throughout the vehicle. Multiple dual-stage airbags and Honda’s available SmartVent® front side and side curtain airbags with rollover sensor help to surround occupants in a cocoon of safety. However, there’s no substitute for using your seatbelts. Always remember to buckle up.
