Drivers can always save money by finding the right insurance quote, but this month an environmental group is urging them to go an extra step for the planet as well as their wallets.
EcoDrivingUSA, an organization that works to help the environment through more eco-friendly driving practices, has declared May to be National EcoDriving Month. Some supporters of the effort include Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bill Ritter, as well as various members of Congress.
"The key to EcoDriving is that anyone can do it, in any vehicle, and best of all, it's easy. Now, as the summer driving season gets underway, EcoDriving month is the ideal time for each of us to renew our green driving habits," Dave McCurdy of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers said in a statement.
The organization points out that a typical driver can save as much as $200 per year just by using cruise control for 10,000 miles, and that sticking to a 60 mph speed limit can improve fuel economy as much as 23 percent. Another tip is for drivers to travel at a steady speed to make themselves more likely to make it through more red lights without stopping, further adding to fuel efficiency.
Drivers who take the time to shop for a good insurance quote are often accustomed to saving money. Now, those savings can be compounded by taking some extra steps to protect the environment.
