These days with so many cars and trucks on the road safety tends to become paramount.
Asa driver you must look all around as their is so much going on while you are in your car just driving.
Even with all of this safety we still go about our lives distracted leading to not following safety rules but ending up getting hurt or worse hurting someone else.
Which is bad!
As a Lyft driver who is running his own best side hustle in the world we must be very careful as well as aware that our precious cargo is taken safely to where they need to go.
Without them we cannot be in business so we need to be extra careful as their lives are in your hands!

Yes they are in your car so you are in charge of their safety. You have to make sure they get to where they need to go safely and quickly.
It does not just benefit them but it will benefit you as well. Being safe in your car is what will keep you and your Lyft client from receiving a early death because of your carelessness.
I see it all the time while driving excessive speed, weaving in and out of traffic, switching lanes with no signaling and even tail gating other drivers.
So I came up with 7 safety guidelines you should follow when you are driving a Lyft client.
1. Drive The Posted Speed Limit:
There is a reason why that posted speed limit is there. And that my fellow Lyft driver is to protect you as well as those around you from getting hurt.
Still you see it all the time! People driving way above the posted limit. Risking not only their lives but of those around him and those with him.
Why put yourself in such a predicament?
Why put your Lyft client in such a predicament as well?
As a Lyft driver it’s your duty to make sure your client feels safe and comfortable as possible.
They are paying for a service so they are paying you to take care of them.
2. Use Signal Lights When Turning:
I’m sure you have seen it or even have done it (myself included) when you change lanes and forget to use the signal lights.
The use of signal lights is a feature that will alert other drivers now you are going to turn. This little simple but effective system can prevent you from being hurt or from having a accident.
Get use to using your signal lights.
3. Make Sure You Make Full Stop When You approach a Stop Sign.
When you see a Stop sign do you Stop completely or do you just slow down look both ways quickly continue on your way?
You probably slow down look real quick and keep going. I’m sure you have done that with a Lyft Client as well. YIKES!!
It’s important that you make a full stop when you see a Stop sign, once that’s done you slowly creep up until you can view the street both ways from in coming cars. After you see that you are clear to go then go.
Always make full Stop when encountering a Stop sign
4. Always Use Your Seat Belts while in your Car
If your a Lyft driver please make sure that all your seat bets work well. Even the ones in your back seat. Faulty seat belts are an accident waiting to happen.
Seat belts can help you from not only the accident but it will prevent you from flying out of your windshield as well as your Lyft passenger.
Seats belts as well as with airbags have a great survival rating rather than a car with faulty seat belts and airbags.
Be smart wear your seat belts and instruct your Lyft client to do the same.
5. Make Sure Windows are Clear from debris.
Dirty windows can prevent you from seeing the road clearly. Especially in the summer time with all the bugs smashing against your windshield not only is yucky but it can prevent from you seeing the road clearly.
Which brings me to the next guideline
6. Always Change Your windshield Wipers every few months.
Windshield Wipers provide a great function for a Lyft driver. Windshield Wipers clean your windshield as well and move debris away from your point of sight.
Sometimes though we become lazy and forget to change the Wipers then get mad when it rains and you can’t see! Not only is that an issue but can become a danger to you and your Lyft passenger.
Check those Wipers!
7. Check Your Wiper Fluid.
Always check your Wiper Fluid everyday if possible. This will help your Wipers keep your windshield free and clear. And if you use a product called RainX even better!
Now that you now know the 7 Safety Guidelines while driving a Lyft client you will be well aware of what you will need to do to keep your client safe and comfortable.
