This is sound advice for new and veteran drivers alike. We know some of you Maryland Toyota drivers like to accelerate excessively in order to get ahead of 18-wheelers, but you are putting them, and yourself, in danger. Learn how to properly navigate around them.
We know when you hit routes 95, 13, and 50 you are looking for a quicker way to cruise, but do not cut off a trucker. That small gap may seem like a clear opening for you, but if you get in front of the truck, then have to hit your brakes for any reason, you can easily get hit. Unlike your sporty Toyota Corolla, it takes about three times the distance for the truck to stop.
Another merging issue arises when the trucker wants to change lanes and our Maryland Toyota drivers speed up to get in front of them. Think about the chain reaction you cause for other motorists to get past him as well. It is a good idea to flash your lights to let them know it is safe to merge, and then you can always get in the passing lane later.
We know they are big and you can literally see them from a mile away, but that does not mean truckers can see you. You know how you have blind spots on your car; well they are MUCH BIGGER on an 18-wheeler. Do not drive alongside a truck because they most likely cannot see you. Pass or stay back, those are your two best options.
Also, we know many drivers like to serve their own forms of justice on the road like getting in front of other motorists that annoy them, then slowing down. Truck drivers are on a schedule, and you playing policeman is not helping them. This also puts you in danger of other drivers not seeing you directly in front of the truck when they want to merge.
Stay safe on the road and respect others in all circumstances. Even though your car has amazing safety systems, it is not a tank. For more information on how one of our cars can keep you safe, call our Maryland Toyota dealership today at (866) 547-3989.

When it comes to innovating green technologies, it would certainly seem that Nissan has a knack for always staying a stretch ahead of the curve. Of course, manufacturing the world’s best selling electric vehicle certainly doesn’t hurt.
Now entering its fourth production year, the 2014 Nissan LEAF at our Nissan dealer serving Stafford began as the first mass-market 100% electric vehicle. Since then, the 0% emissions Nissan LEAF has grown to be the best selling electric vehicle worldwide.
Recently attained figures show that the Nissan LEAF is also the leading electric vehicle in Europe, where it dominated the market last year and sold 25% more vehicles than the next most popular electric model. In fact, sales jumped up by 204%, cementing the Nissan LEAF’s place as Europe’s favorite electric vehicle.
On this side of the pond, the 2014 Nissan LEAF holds a similarly resounding popularity with US drivers. In the US, however, drivers have the added benefit of supporting American jobs when they purchase the 2014 Nissan LEAF; this electric vehicle is assembled at an assembly plant in Smyrna, TN, and the vehicle’s advanced battery is built nearby at the nation’s largest lithium-ion battery plant.
That battery is a key component of the 2014 Nissan LEAF’s 100% electric powertrain, which allows for lively, responsive performance with 0% emissions. Alongside the convenience of home charging, the 2014 Nissan LEAF also offers estimates of 126 MPGe in the city and 101 MPGe on the highway.
Additionally, drivers can look forward to completely eliminating the costs of traditional fuel from their budgets with the 2014 Nissan LEAF. After factoring in tax incentives, the purchase price of the 2014 Nissan LEAF rivals that of similar vehicles with traditional powertrains.
Whether you’re drawn to the 2014 Nissan LEAF to save the environment, to save on fuel costs, or a bit of both, this astoundingly popular electric vehicle offers a laundry list of pros without a con in sight. For more information on the 2014 Nissan LEAF, be sure to contact our Nissan dealership serving Stafford online or to call Pohanka Nissan directly at (540) 898-5200 today!
