“On the track, it is my job to know every detail about the drivers around me, as well as the ins-and-outs of the track on each particular weekend. It is no less important for everyday drivers to be aware of what’s happening around them as they drive to work or transport their families to dinner,” he says.
When people ask him how to stay safe on the road, Newman offers the following advice:
* Bring a wireless phone with you so you can call for help in case you run into trouble. Be sure it’s equipped with a hands-free device if you plan to use it while driving.
* Always buckle up no matter how far you’re traveling.
* Don’t leave home without an emergency kit with you in case you run into trouble.
* Always carry a spare tire, a jack and a set of jumper cables in your trunk.
“The message Alltel Wireless and I hope to get across is simple -- we share a concern for your safety on the road and we hope that the next time you sit behind the wheel, you’ll make sure you have all your bases covered. Safety is your most important call,” says Newman.
