How to Stay Safe When Riding in a Limousine

Limousines are a great way to add style to a special occasion like prom, a wedding or a bachelorette party. Limos allow the passengers to enjoy their night without having to designate a driver or bother with traffic. To get the most out of your special night, follow these limo safety tips from Atlantic Limo.

Wear Seat Belts

Just like in any car, it’s important to wear a seat belt for safety in the event of an accident. While limousine accidents are rare due to experienced drivers and careful regulations, accidents are still possible in any vehicle. Seat belts are a primary safety feature in limos for all passengers, reducing crash-related injuries and deaths by almost half.

Ensure that seat belts are visible when entering your limo. Ask the limo driver for help finding each safety belt, if necessary, and make sure each person in your party wears one.

Follow Driver Rules

Limo drivers want you to have fun and enjoy your time spent with them, but they have a set of rules created for your safety and the safety of the driver. Be aware of the rules and ask questions if you need clarification on any of them. Not only will following the rules keep you and your co-passengers safe, but it will allow you to enjoy your ride without any complications.

Be Aware of Noise Level and Distractions

Every limousine driver is trained and equipped to drive amidst distraction, but for your safety and the safety of the people in your party, be aware of the distractions you may present for the driver.

This doesn’t mean to steer clear of fun. By all means, enjoy your ride with your friends or family, but for safety’s sake, keep noise to a reasonable level and avoid getting the attention of the driver unless absolutely necessary.
