Road Awareness and Self Awareness
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), two out of three motorists will be involved in an injury accident during their life. Similarly, it is valuable to know what to do if you get involved in a motor vehicle accident.
If you are not well or fit to drive, ask a family member or a relative. So that you can avoid getting into accidents or causing avoidable damages to you or properties. Hence, never attempt to do it yourself, as it may lead to disastrous results.
Practice safe driving habits on the road at all times… even when it is empty, or no police officer around to make sure you make a full and complete stop.
