Plymouth Rock Gas Finder & Safety Suggestions

Labor day we said goodbye to summer and dove head first into our Fall schedules and driving changes. Plymouth Rock Assurance Corporation has a few tips and tricks on how to save a few bucks while staying safe.

Plymouth Rock has suggested taking the following precautions on a regular basis:

  • Check your vehicle stats — Double check your tire pressure, windshield wipers, fluids, tire tread and other vehicle vitals.
  • Slow down! — Obeying the speed limit keeps a little extra gas in your tank. According to an article on “aggressive driving and speeding lowers gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds.”
  • Buckle up — Ensure yourself and all passengers are buckled. It’s also important to make sure all children are securely fastened into their own age-appropriate safety seat.
  • Avoid distractions — Be careful not to take your eyes off the road. Even a second’s distraction could lead to disaster. Especially with the new texting and driving ban you wouldn’t want to save your gas savings on a ticket.

Highway Speed Cameras – A Word of Caution: Slow Down!

Late at night you drive home alone on the road. A bright flash comes from behind. you check the rearview mirror, still no one behind you. You think this odd but continue on your way. Some time later you’re reading through your mail and find a speeding ticket for that night.

According to Russ Rader of the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, speed cameras are used in 48 communities nationwide, including areas of Massachusetts.

Giving the surveillance a whole police squad can not preform every hour of the day, the hope is our roads will be safer. According to the IIHS, “speed cameras ‘can substantially reduce speeding on a wide range of roadway types.'”

-“Speed Cameras on U.S. Highways?“, Craig Howie CNN

It’s important to acknowledge these cameras, even one speeding ticket will affect future auto insurance rates. Although the cameras have not been enforced nationally, they’ve slowly been creeping across the country. Driving at the posted speed limit will not only save you from spending on tickets, you’ll save on gas too!

We’ve all had the manic driver zoom up pushing us to go a few miles faster. Whether there’s a cop waiting down the block or a camera to flash your plates, you can never be sure. Follow the speed limits and you’ll reap the benefits.
