Injuries in Traffic Crash
Despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models, crash rates in Nevada continue to increase, rather than decrease.
As a matter of fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be injured in a traffic accident during their life.
Sad but true, auto accidents just like the solo-vehicle crash on Rusler Court are a major public health threat. They are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
That is why knowing what to do if you get involved in a motor vehicle accident is valuable.
Meanwhile, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving and avoid accidents:
- First, always drive at a controllable speed.
- Then, it is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.
- Also, be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
- This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have the right of way.
- Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Removing all distractions such as mobile phone use, and unstrapped toddlers, can help us focus on the road.
