Prom Pledge - Making The Right Choice Before Getting Behind The Wheel

April 14th, 2017

I pledge to never get behind the wheel while under the influence. I pledge to give my undivided attention to the road. I pledge never to text and drive. I pledge to drive at the posted speed limits and abide by all traffic laws. I pledge to never drive while fatigued.

 

 

In an effort to educate our area’s student drivers, United Tire and Service has developed a community awareness initiative to encourage safe driving practices during this highly anticipated time of year. By taking the pledge above, community members are joining this movement to make our roads a safer place for everyone who drives them.

Prom Driving Safety

April 12th, 2017

Prom night signifies the end of the school year and the last few weeks before summer. It’s a night that students look forward to their entire high school career. From the gowns and tuxes to the corsages and photos, students go above and beyond to look their best, thinking of every last detail to make the night memorable. But, is preparing for everything really possible?

According to MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, teen alcohol use kills 4,700 people each year and 90% of teens believe their peers are more likely to drink and drive on prom night.

While it may take a backseat to all of the glam around the night’s festivities, knowing how to stay safe on the roads can make the difference between a night you never want to forget and a tragedy that will forever stay in your mind.

In an effort to keep the roads in our community safe during this exciting time of year, United Tire is serving as an advocate for safe and fo ...[more]

Back to School Road Safety

September 13th, 2016

It's mid September and the school year has begun! This means that busses and carpools are back on the roads and school zone lights are flashing. Our main priority is safety on the roads, so we want to pass along some reminders to help everyone in the community stay safe as the school year begins. Here are some tips to remember when interacting with school busses or driving through school zones.


School Bus

When the bus’s red lights begin to flash and the STOP sign is extended, you must stop 10 feet away from the bus. This rule applies if you are stopping behind the bus AND if you’re traveling on the opposite side of the road. The only exception to this rule is if you are traveling on a divided highway, then cars traveling in the opposite direction do not have to stop ...[more]
