Benefits of driving a Certified Pre-Owned Porsche

Stay well-rested before traveling

Each year, thousands of accidents occur simply due to driver fatigue. Spending the day with family and all the events that go into that can be exhausting, so be sure you’re getting an adequate amount of sleep and consider having an extra coffee before hitting the road for a quick energy boost. Be sure you’re paying attention to the road at all times regardless of what might be going on off in the distance.2019 718 Cayman exterior profile

Drive defensively

It’s not always enough to simply drive smart. You need to be aware of others on the roads who may not be as well prepared as you. leave plenty of distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in case of a deer running out on the road or if they hit a patch of ice. Let aggressive drivers pass by you if they’re getting too close. You’ll also want to be on the lookout for vehicles that may be swerving or driving irresponsibly, because many family get togethers include alcohol and not all drivers wait long enough before getting behind the wheel.
