You will be connected to a State Police Dispatcher and they will notify the nearest State Police Barracks. If possible, move your vehicle to the far right side of the roadway, put your hazard lights on and be aware of on coming traffic.
Allow extra travel time when planning trips.
Getting an early start will get you to your destination on time and avoid the desire to speed or drive aggressively.
Always wear your safety belt.
This may not only save your life if you are involved in a crash, but it will reduce the seriousness of any injuries sustained in the crash. It may also prevent a crash by allowing you to maintain control of your vehicle while taking evasive measure.
Be alert to vehicles around you.
Motorcycles can be hard to see in side view mirrors. Be sure to look over your shoulder before changing lanes and always use your turn signals.
Ensure your vehicle is in good working order.
Check all fluids, gas gauge and tires prior to leaving your home.
Focus on your driving and do not get distracted.
Only use your cell phone when operating a motor vehicle if it is absolutely necessary. Do not read your e-mails or use other such electronic devices while driving and remember that wearing headphones is specifically prohibited while operating a motor vehicle.
