How to Drive Safe in the City of Calgary


At Strathmore Ford, we’re Calgary, AB Ford dealers who value the safety of your family whenever you’re on the road. It’s always helpful to refresh ourselves on safe-driving practices. Here are a few reminders and vehicle options with exceptional safety features you can count on.

Tips for Safe Driving

As the season shifts to fall, colder and potentially rainier weather is on the horizon. There will also be progressively less daylight. Keep these measures in mind as you face slick autumn conditions and shorter days:

  • Maintain a healthy distance between your car and the car in front of you, especially during rainy or snowy weather

  • Ensure proper use of headlights for adequate visibility

  • Be careful when using brakes during rainfall, and avoid hard braking on leaves

  • Keep your windshield clean and free of any possible vision obstruction

  • Check to make sure tire pressure is where it should be

Safe Ford Vehicles

We want to do our part to keep you and your loved ones safe. We’re proud to carry new Ford cars with many safety-first features.

The 2017 Ford Focus is a family sedan you can rely on. It has earned an overall five-star rating in crash tests and a top score of “Good” from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Standard and optional safety features include:

  • Rearview camera

  • Stability and traction control

  • Emergency crash notifications

  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert

  • Lane-departure warning system

Other Ford vehicles with strong safety features are the 2017 Ford Escape and 2017 Ford Edge. Both SUV options shine when it comes to enhancements for on-the-road readiness. Adaptive cruise control, lane departure mitigation, and a drowsy-driver monitoring system are just a few of these assets.
