What Do We Need To Do in a Crash?
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do every day. As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a car crash.
Furthermore, according to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
So, it is crucial that everyone remain calm in order to properly handle the immediate aftermath of an automobile collision.
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.
