California Auto Accidents
In 2017, 485,866 accidents were reported solely in the state of California. However, as common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
When driving, scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to check whether there’s a possible hazard. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead
