Arrive Alive in Lansing

Posted January 23, 2018 9:00 AM

We've all seen drivers do crazy things while driving to or from Lansing. A guy shaving in the rear-view mirror, a woman applying makeup, people talking on their phones, texting or drinking from an enormous coffee mug. It's a wonder we even dare drive on Michigan roads.

The truth is that all of us are distracted when we drive. Unfortunately, traffic, road construction and other external factors are beyond our control. The distractions inside our car, however, are things we can often control.

Here's some things that'll give you more control in your car, and help keep your attention on the roads around Lansing.

  • Lansing drivers who are 16 to 20 years old tend to be more distracted by the radio, CD or MP3 player.
  • Lansing drivers who are 20 to 29 are more distracted by passengers in the car, including small children.
  • Those over age 65 tend to be more distracted by objects or events that are outside of the vehicle.

Other factors like fatigue, stress and lack of sleep make it harder to pay attention to driving – no matter what age we are. It is always better to pull over and take a quick nap than risk falling asleep at the wheel. Lansing drivers are also distracted by thinking about relationships, family issues, money and bills. So what can Lansing drivers do to manage these distractions? Well, the first thing is to eliminate as many as we can.

If you really think you have to shave, change your clothes or put on make-up while driving in Lansing – you're wrong. Just start getting ready earlier so you have enough time to finish those things before you drive around Lansing.

The professional here at AutoSurgeonInc wand you to remember that driving is probably the most dangerous thing you'll do all day – so don't make it any worse. Use these tips to keep you and your loved ones safer behind the wheel in Lansing.

Testimonials

  • My daughter brought her GMC in for a noise in the suspension and a air bag issue- Bill and his staff did a great job in diagnosing and repairing the vehicle with keeping us updated on the process. Thank You
    -Brian/Amber

  • My husband has taken his car to Auto Surgeon for many years and has nothing but praise for their expertise and customer service. We both trust that whatever the problem, we're in good hands with Bill and his team. Today it was my car's turn to need repairs. Within 90 minutes of dropping it off, they contacted me with a diagnosis and an estimate. By early afternoon, my car was ready. First-rate experience, start to finish. No one wants car problems, but if you have them, this is the place to go.
    -Ginnie P.

  • Auto Surgeon has been honest with me since I've been bringing my truck and car to them to be serviced. Just last week, I needed my car repaired by the weekend. I took it in on Friday am (major work done) and they had it back to me at 4:30 that afternoon. They take care of you from the time you drop it off until you pick it up. First class all the way! They will be doing work on all my vehicles. Oh yeah, I even stole a pen from Bill. Thanks!!!!
    -Steven Jacobson

  • Auto Surgeon guys have always been honest and up front with me. They get the job done and let you know anything else going on trying help you out before it becomes a problem.
    -Ryan - Lansing, Michigan

  • I didn't have any actual work done, but they were very honest with me when they took a look at my vehicle and told me exactly what needed to be fixed. There were also priced very fair. I will definitely return in the future!
    -Matt T. - Lansing, Michigan

  • Great speed and efficiency on all repairs. Communication between Bill and myself was very quick and he notified me right when my car was fixed. My family returns for multiple reasons. Great service and car care, but overall because Bill is a great business owner and always takes the time to go above and beyond by helping to explain what we can do to maintain good care on my car. Will definitely be returning.
