What Do We Need To Do To Avoid a Vehicle Crash?
Road accident rates in California continue to increase, rather than decrease, despite the additional safety features on newer vehicle models.
According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
However, as common of an occurrence as they are, still, many people do not suspect what to do when a crash happens.
So, it is important that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision like the head-on crash on Hermosa Avenue.
Also, here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
– Always drive at a controllable speed.
– Never 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 right of way.
– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phones unstrapped toddlers, etc.
