Learn about what to do to drive defensively with Nissan's 2023 Armada - McGavock Nissan Amarillo

How to Drive Defensively With Nissan

While staying safe takes priority, your comfort is a close 2nd. Say no to unpredictable drivers with Nissan’s Safety Shield 360. Between busy roads and long car rides, it feels like driving will always be stressful. However, staying safe and comfortable on the road is not far from reach by driving defensively.

In this post, we’ll review some solutions you can implement to make driving safer and more enjoyable. 

Keep your speed down

Although deciding to speed is easy, it can harm you and other drivers. Many people speed because they’re in a hurry or impatience. Even though choosing to speed is easy, it can hurt you and other drivers. You should leave early for work, outings, road trips, or trips back home. That way, you can stay safe while on the road.

Stay alert

Staying alert is essential to staying safe. When you’re on the road, always check blind spots for approaching cars. Some vehicles, like Nissan’s Rogue, have a blindspot warning feature, which alerts drivers when a vehicle comes toward their blind spots.

Brake with the car in front of you

It’s a good rule of thumb to stay at least 3 seconds away from the vehicle in front of you. To drive defensively, look out for the vehicle’s brake lights so you can start braking with the car in front of you. Nissan’s Armada has an Automatic Emergency Braking System that monitors your speed and distance between vehicles in front of you. It also detects pedestrians, so you stop in time. 

Listen to music

You can improve your comfort by listening to music, podcasts, or audiobooks while driving. With a built-in voice recognition system, vehicles like Nissan’s Rogue can help you change your music safely. Click the voice recognition button on your steering wheel and easily switch your car’s mood. 

Your comfort and safety take precedence during every drive! To learn more about Nissan’s Safety Shield 360, visit nissanusa.com or call (806) 354-3550 today!
