Tips for Safe Driving


Fuel prices are always on the rise, so it's more important than ever to save money on gas. Here are some fuel-saving tips from DOS Driving School.

Here are a few fuel saving tips from driving School:

  • Accelerate smoothly. Don't floor the gas pedal when you start driving or when you're merging onto the highway. Accelerate smoothly and gradually to save fuel.
  • Maintain a steady speed. When you're driving on the highway, try to maintain a steady speed. Avoid speeding up and slowing down frequently, as this wastes fuel.
  • Use cruise control. If your car has cruise control, use it on long stretches of highway. Cruise control will help you maintain a steady speed, which will save fuel.
  • Avoid idling. If you're going to be stopped for more than a few minutes, turn off your car. Idling wastes fuel and pollutes the environment.
  • Check your tire pressure regularly. Underinflated tires can increase your fuel consumption by up to 3%. Make sure to check your tire pressure regularly and inflate them to the recommended level.
  • Remove excess weight from your car. Every extra pound you carry in your car increases your fuel consumption. If you can, remove any unnecessary weight from your car, such as roof racks, bike racks, and heavy cargo.
  • Drive the right car for your needs. If you don't need a big SUV or truck, consider getting a smaller, more fuel-efficient car. You'll save money on gas in the long run.
