Many factors can lead to a car accident. No matter how major or minor an accident appears, the list of potential injuries is endless. That is why you should take every precaution necessary to avoid being involved in a collision.
Three Quick Safety Tips
Here are three simple safety tips you can follow that could end up being the difference between life and death:
- Avoid the “fast lane.” Despite the fact that traffic generally travels at higher speeds in the fast lane and is more dangerous, the fast lane lacks the same number of escape routes as middle lanes do in the event you have to swerve suddenly to avoid a road hazard.
- Let a car’s condition be a sign. They say you can’t judge a book by its cover; however, the condition of another person’s car can be a key indicator. Multiple dents and dings may be a sign of erratic and dangerous driving behavior.
- Minimize nighttime driving. Though there is generally less traffic at night, driving after the sun goes down poses its own set of dangers. Nighttime driving decreases your ability to recognize and avoid certain road hazards. Drive during the day as much as possible.
