While Superior Auto Body Saskatoon appreciate your business, we know it's never fun to get into a collision in the first place. So here are some great Smart Driving tips to help you get to where you're going safely. 

 

 

•Stay out of the way. Give aggressive drivers plenty of room to get around you.

•Drive defensively. Do not assume other drivers will follow traffic rules.

•Do not insist on your right-of-way if another driver is challenging you.

•Give a tailgater an opportunity to pass you by changing lanes.

•Be alert to those who are putting on makeup, talking on car phones, reading, eating or otherwise not paying attention to driving.

•Give cars room to merge ahead of you.

•Follow these tips to avoid rude or aggressive driving tendencies yourself.

•Don't make eye contact with an aggressive driver.

•Don't use obscene gestures.

•Use your horn sparingly.

•Don't block the passing lane.

•Don't switch lanes without signaling.

•Avoid blocking the right-hand turn lane.

•Do not tailgate.

•Don't get distracted by the car phone.

•Don't play the radio excessively loudly.

•Allow plenty of time for your trip.

•Driving is transportation, not competition. Want to compete? Find a racetrack.

•Be courteous, even when other drivers are not. Retaliating won't get you where you're going any sooner. Don't assume the other driver is out to antagonize you; he or she may just be in a hurry, too.

•It's not your job to teach others to drive. If, for example, you block a speeding car to slow it down, you might be inviting trouble. Leave law enforcement to the police.

•Make time good instead of making good time. If it takes 25 minutes to get to work, why leave yourself only 15? Leave earlier and don't play beat the clock. If driving makes you impatient, play music or listen to a book on tape to pass the time.

Here Monty shares a Trusted Tp on what to do when you have an accident!

1. Exchange information with the other driver involved in the collision.

Get the other driver's:

•name

•customer number

•licence plate number

A Collision Report form (pdf, 55 kb) can help you remember what information to collect. Print a copy and keep it in your glove box.

If applicable, get the names and addresses of any witnesses. Witnesses can be crucial in determining who's at fault or responsible for the collision.

When to report your collision to the police

You must report the collision to the police if any of the following circumstances apply:  

•the collision results in injury or death. If there are injuries, you must also report the collision to 1 of our injury claims offices.

•it's a hit and run

•a driver is impaired

•any of the vehicles involved have to be towed from the scene

•the collision involves a vehicle that does not have a valid licence plate or is an out-of-province vehicle If none of the above apply, you only need to report the collision to SGI.

2. File your claim.

To file your claim, you can:

•use SGI online auto claim registration service, Auto eClaim

•call SGI Dial-A-Claim service during normal office hours at the claims centre closest to your home Have the following ready when reporting your claim:

•your driver's licence

•your vehicle registration

•if applicable, your auto extension insurance policy number

SGI will then set up an appointment to have your vehicle appraised and the damage assessed.

3. Meet with an SGI appraiser.

On the day of your appointment, drive your vehicle to the claims centre. The appraiser will assess the damage to your vehicle and the cost of repairs. If your vehicle isn't safe to drive, they'll arrange to have it towed to 1 of our claims centres.

4. Have your vehicle repaired.

Once the appraisal is done, you'll get a printout outlining the cost of repairs if your vehicle is repairable. After your adjuster confirms your insurance coverage is in order, you can have your vehicle repaired at the auto body shop of your choice.See SGI Vehicle insurance coverage section for details.

5. Authorize payment.

 Once your vehicle has been repaired, the body shop will ask you to sign a Certification of Repairs form. This form signifies that you're satisfied with the repairs and authorizes SGI to pay the body shop.
