Injured in Traffic Crash

Sad but true, auto accidents are a major public health threat. They are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
That is why it is valuable to know what to do if you get involved in a motor vehicle accident.
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 right of way.
– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Removing all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, can help us focus on the road.
