Defensive Driving Tips To Keep You Safer on the Roads of Charlotte

Here at Hendrick BMW, we're passionate about helping our clients with their automotive needs. So if you're in need of a new car or a used luxury vehicle, or you're searching for a great rate on your next car loan or lease, we've got your back. But we also want to be there for you over the long-run. So when you need vehicle maintenance or service, you can rely on us. You can also count on us to provide you tips and tricks to get the most out of your BMW while also staying as safe as possible. With that in mind, we've compiled the following list of defensive driving tips to help you and your passengers get to every destination more securely.


  • Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle ahead of you. This can greatly reduce frontal collisions.
  • When enjoying your smartphone and its media, make sure you use the iDrive technology or smartphone integration in your BMW, and put the phone down while you're on-the-road.
  • Avoid speeding – this not only can keep you from getting tickets but also can reduce the severity of a potential collision.
  • When inclement weather hits, use your lights and make sure to take precaution.
  • Pay keen attention to other drivers on the road, not just your own actions.
  • Consider a BMW with the latest driver aids and xDrive all-wheel-drive for your next vehicle lease or purchase to help you stay safer, wherever you journey.
