It is interesting how much we might need to change our habits when we change the context of ourÂ existence. Â You might have figured out from the show topics over the last few days that I might have taken a bit of a vacation last week. Â Yup. Â Spent some time in Florida with the family having fun in the sun.
The principles we use to keep ourselves safe never really change, but the application of those principles must. Â I thought about this particularly when I spent some time tooling around in a convertible.
Me in a convertible is a bit humorous especially a convertible without snow tires. Â The safety implications of being in an open topped vehicle are pretty major and that is what we are here to talk about today. Â Don’t forget that just because you don’t have a convertible doesn’t mean you can’t apply some of the ideas I talk about here to driving with the windows down.
Here are just a few suggestions:
Keep your stuff safe:
- Put the top up when you arrive
- Use the trunk
- Use the trunk while you drive
- Belt your stuff in
Keep yourself safe:
- Use yourÂ seat-belt
- Consider keeping the top up
- Protect your eyes
