PPSL BMW Car Tips - Good Driving Habits

Are you are good driver? By ‘good’, we do not mean a fast and furious F1 racer. We mean a responsible, cautious and safe driver. Being a good driver can be challenging when you’re constantly caught in the hustle and bustle of city life. Therefore, in hopes of revitalizing the fun in driving responsibly, we’ve highlighted certain micro-moments as light-hearted reminders to encourage good driving habits.

Gradual Starts And Stops

Be gentle on the accelerator and let your car glide you forward. Similarly, step on the brakes gently to come to a controlled stop. It’ll make the journey that much more pleasant for the passengers.

Turn Off Engine When Idling

When your vehicle is idling in a stationary position, be kind to your pocket and the environment by turning that engine off and roll down your windows instead.

Signal Before Turning

Before making a turn, always lower your speed and signal to give pedestrians time to react. Nothing is more frightening and dangerous than a fast vehicle making abrupt and sharp turns.

Check Your Blind Spot

Always have total awareness of your surroundings, especially when switching lanes or turning. Make it a point to always use the three-point check - rear-view mirror, side mirror then over your shoulder.

Two Hands On The Wheel

In the movies, driving with just one hand seems so cool and sophisticated. However, in real life, let’s be smart and stick to putting both hands on the steering wheel, especially when making a turn. 

Always drive with two hands on the steering wheel

Hands-free Conversation

Thanks to technology, many cars do come with in-built Bluetooth function to accommodate hand-free calls. Otherwise, we can make use of Bluetooth headsets to receive calls.

Slow Down On Amber

We’ve all been guilty of taking flight at the flash of amber. Take a different perspective and see the amber light as a sign of taking a break. Slow the car down and take the opportunity to rest.
