MILLIONS of motorists are suffering from “parallelophobia” – a fear of parallel parking, according to a new study. The study found that many drivers struggle with the maneuver because they’re frightened of hitting someone else’s car, while one in five admit it’s because they have no spatial awareness. 18% said they have real problems parallel parking because they can’t see the front or back of their car from the driver’s seat.

Fatigue can have a huge impact on your driving and affect your ability to drive safely. Studies show that being awake for 17 hours has the same effect on your driving ability as a blood alcohol concentration of 0.05. Beat driver fatigue by getting a good night’s sleep before heading out and share the drive when possible.
Accidents involving children typically occur when a vehicle is coming out of a driveway or parking stall and hits an unattended child because the driver didn’t see him or her. Prevent these accidents with these tips: • Teach keiki not to play around cars and to move away from a vehicle when a driver gets in or the car is started.
• Walk around your vehicle and check the area before reversing.
• Back up slowly and look behind in case a child dashes by.
According to statistics by FBI Crime Data Explorer, cars are stolen every day in Hawaii. To prevent your car and your valuables from getting stolen, make sure to lock your doors, remove your keys from the vehicle, close the windows, and install an audible alarm and tracking system in your vehicle.
👉🏻Lock your doors‼️
❗️Locking your doors and wearing your seat belt will help to ensure you will not be thrown from your vehicle in a crash.
‼️Being thrown from a vehicle increases your chances of death by 75 percent.
It will also reduce the likelihood of being carjacked or otherwise victimized when you stop at an intersection or pull into a parking lot🚘🚖🚘🚖

We specialize in auto body work and will have you fixed up and looking smooth in no time.
Unfortunately, a recent study done by WalletHub named Hawaii as one of the worst state for drivers. Let’s all do our part to make our roads safer and friendlier by pledging to #DriveAloha .

Hawaii is the worst state in the nation to drive in, according to a study released by personal finance website WalletHub.
The Aloha state got the bottom ranking due to low scores in road quality, a low number of auto repair shops per capita, a large share of rush-hour traffic congestion, a high car theft rate and the highest average gas prices in the U.S.
Do you think the ranking is justified? Read more at the link in our bio.

Parents, if you have a child that is riding the bus for the first time, here are a few tips to keep them safe. Remind your child that a bus stop is not a place to run or play. When the bus arrives, your child should wait for it to come to a complete stop and the driver says it’s okay to approach the bus door, and never walk behind a school bus.
