Speeding, distractions, and intoxication are very common factors of head-on collisions. Always be alert and watchful to those around you when driving. Maintain a safe speed and do not allow yourself to lose control by braking so suddenly that you skid. Slow down so that if there is an impact, this will greatly reduce the damage done and the risk of fatality.
