Robinson offered a few of her own tips for road safety that can benefit even those drivers who believe they are the equal of Mario Andretti when they climb behind the wheel.
"People tend to ignore things that are easy to fix," said Robinson, adding that maintenance is crucial to staying safe on the road. "Especially younger drivers, teenagers, when they don't what's going on under the hood of the car, if they don't know how to fix something they might not ask. So it's good to be proactive and learn to do a general inspection of the car."
Tire tread depth and pressure are important, too. Drivers can check pressure with a standard pressure gauge, and for tread depth, Robinson recommends the classic penny test.
"Take a penny, hold it against the tire upside down. Make sure the tread is deep enough so that it covers Abe Lincoln's head. If you can see the top of his head, the tires aren't able to do what they need to do anymore, and it's time for a replacement," she said.
