Titan Towing has had a great year serving our customers and we hope our blogs have provided you with helpful information as you drive throughout DFW and beyond. As the year is coming to a close, we look back on the topics covered by Titan Towing News from safe driving, to technology, to ethical towing practices.
Factors such as vehicle maintenance, driver well-being, and inclement weather can quickly affect driving, especially in higher populated areas. We covered all of these topics to help you drive safer.
When bad weather occurs, it has the potential to create more accidents and Titan Towing ends up having many more calls for help. We provided the Texas Department of Public Safety (TxDOT) map for road conditions at DriveTexas as well as tips on how to stay safe when inclement weather conditions affect the roads.
Vehicle maintenance can lead to unsafe driving as well, and DMV.org gave us some car maintenance tips such as checking your lights, windshield wipers, and car battery prior to taking a road trip. If your car needs maintenance, it’s important to address it as soon as possible to keep yourself and others safe on the road.
In addition to weather and car maintenance, one of the most important factors for safe driving is ensuring you are not distracted. In previous articles, we looked at different factors which can cause distracted driving including texts and calls, driving under the influence, grooming, eating and talking.
No matter what the issue, the key to keeping safe and avoiding the need for a tow, is staying aware and prepared.
While technology can distract us whether we are driving or not, there are some good aspects to technology which can help keep us safe on the road. These include apps for location and safety as well as automatic vehicle safety features.
In Location and safety apps, we covered how to use Google as well as Apple maps to provide your location. This article also provided information on apps such as FamilyLocator2 and bSafe to easily notify friends and family when you are stranded on the side of the road.
Technology such as automatic safety features, as provided by Consumer Reports Magazine, offered high-tech ways to avoid collisions such as automatic emergency braking, forward collision warnings and blind spot warnings.
All of these technological advances, when used correctly and responsibly, have proved beneficial in reducing accidents and keeping us safe as we travel.
Ethical Towing Practices
Unethical towing stands out as one of the most significant topics we covered as a towing company. This affects not only our business and drivers in our area, but those in other areas of the U.S. as well. That is why Titan’s business is built on the highest ethical standards to provide our customers with the best possible service. This is clearly reflected in our customer feedback through the years.
As the year comes to an end, Titan Towing would like to wish you and yours safe traveling during the holidays as well as the new year. If you need us, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for towing and roadside assistance.
