While technology continues to add more and more safety features of vehicles, distracted driving seems to undue any progress when it comes to safety on the road. In 2016, 37,461 vehicle occupants died as the result of an accident in the United States. Tragically, this number it 5.6% higher than the number of fatalities in 2015. While there are awareness campaigns to end distracted driving, it continues to be an epidemic today that leads to life altering consequences and death.
Experts suggest that the reason traffic deaths are so high is multifaceted. Likely, traffic deaths are caused by distracted driving coupled with the fact that Americans are driving more an ever, which counteract the advantages of any safety systems. Studies show that about 25% of all driving deaths are related to distracted driving. In teens, distracted driving accounts for over 58% of driving fatalities. Automobile accidents are the leading cause of death in teens, and teens show the highest rate of distracted driving. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, nine fatalities occur daily due to distracted driving. The epidemic of distracted driving ruins lives by resulting in death or serious injury, but is completely preventable.

With more Americans driving more miles than ever, road rage incidents have been on the rise. Be prepared by taking simple steps to ensure your own anger does not escalate.
First, the golden rule is not to take driving personally. Try not to engage in road rage by keeping your cool even if other drivers are not following the rules of the road or being aggressive. Do not engage in escalating behaviors, such as brake checking, retaliatory cutting off, flipping off or swearing. Instead, take a deep breath and try to get away from the dangerous driver or report the driver. While you cannot control an aggressive driver, you can control your reaction and choose to leave the situation.
Furthermore, be sure to take steps to reduce your stress during your commutes. Stress exacerbates any other emotions. Thus, if you are stressed, you are more likely to experience intense anger when confronted with an aggressive driver. To reduce stress, make sure you leave enough time for your commute. Not only does this decrease your stress, but it prevents you from becoming an aggressive driver who needs to make up 5-10 minutes on a commute by speeding. Additionally, make sure of your physical comfort every morning before leaving. Adjust your seat comfortably and make sure your mirrors are properly situated. You may also choose to play some relaxing music on your commute.
Finally, make sure you are following preventative road safety rules, such as following the speed limit and wearing your seat belt. If your seat belt is not retracting properly, Safety Restore can help with seat belt tensioner repair. Safety Restore offers the seat belt tensioner repair service by rebuilding seat belts that have been locked or blown after an accident. Whether you were in an accident or your car was purchased from an auction, seatbelt tensioner repair is necessary to ensure the safety of anyone driving the vehicle.

Road rage continues to be an epidemic among roadways in the United States. We have all seen the shocking videos online: drivers fighting other drivers for seemingly incidental and arbitrary reasons. While you may think that this won’t happen to you, it likely could happen and may end tragically if you do not know what to do.
Obviously the golden rule is not to engage in road rage, but sometimes an aggressive driver has it out for you. If you are confronted with such an aggressive driver, there are vital steps you should take which can deescalate the situation.
First, try to diffuse the situation before it begins. If a driver honks or flips you off for a perceived aggression you made, you can show remorse. This is often the most successful way of diffusing a potentially dangerous situation. You can do this by mouthing “Sorry!” or wave to them. Allow drivers ample space to pass you. If this does not work, you can report the driver to the authorities if you or others on the road are in imminent danger. Do not play vigilante. Specifically, do not chase down the driver, or engage in retaliatory road rage by cutting them off, running them off the road, or making obscene gestures. Instead, pull over to a safe location that is out of the way of traffic.
Finally, if you are in a situation in which an aggressive driver has exited his or her vehicle, call 911 immediately. Do not exit your vehicle and make sure your doors are locked. Do not make eye contact with the aggressive driver, and do not communicate with the aggressive driver. Instead, look ahead. If you can safety drive away, do so. Otherwise, wait for the authorities to arrive and diffuse the situation.

For a tool that promotes safety during collisions, many people do not know what airbag modules are or their function in a vehicle. Also known as the airbag sensor, diagnostic unit, and computer module, the airbag module is responsible for receiving information from the collision sensor. That information is then relayed to the airbag sensors and the airbags are deployed during impact. Thus, having a faulty airbag module can prevent airbags from deploying when they are most needed, and can result in dangerous consequences for those in the vehicle.
Found in all vehicles, the airbag module is a computer that stores information. Thus, during a collision, the impact data is stored in the air bag module. You will know when this occurs because your airbag light will turn on until the airbag module is replaced or repaired. This information renders the airbag module useless and typically vehicle owners often replace it. However, airbag module reset is a simple process at Safety Restore. The airbag module reset service can fix your existing air bag module and save you money.
Air bag module replacement can often cost upwards of $1,000.00. Safety Restore offers airbag module reset in which the original air bag module is used, but any crash data hard codes are reset.
