Safety takes many forms, and with the days getting shorter and the seasons changing, it’s important to stay alert while driving and avoid as many distractions as possible.

Watch out for other drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians, and use the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) Safety Resources to prepare yourself for scenarios other REALTORS® have encountered. The NAR offers 80 safety tips that every real estate professional can benefit from, such as today’s message: “While driving to and from the office or appointments, always take the safest and best-lighted route — day or night.”

In addition to the safety tips, the NAR offers webinars, videos, apps and safety planning strategies. For more details, go to:
