Don’t be a statistic

No one plans to get into an accident, but with an annual average of more than 200,000 reported collisions affecting nearly 400,000 people each year in Ontario*, we know that they can happen.

That’s why it’s important to protect yourself and take precautions to stay safe on the road. Here are some helpful tips for safe driving.

Leave space.

Remembering to leave adequate space between you and the vehicle in front of you can keep you vehicle on the road and your insurance costs down.

Drive according to the weather conditions.

Snow tires are critical for improving safety in harsh winter conditions and for reducing stopping times. Combined with a proactive approach to handling poor driving conditions, they reduce your likelihood of an accident.

Avoid tickets.

Did you know that just two traffic violations will result in an increase in your insurance premium? This is regardless of whether or not the police officer included points with the ticket. A third ticket will result in your policy moving to a higher-risk insurance carrier. This means more money out of your pocket!

Driving defensively will protect your good driving record. Stay safe in 2014.
