We can minimize the risks of multi-vehicle collisions by keeping a safe distance from others on the road. Follow all road signs and traffic lights, keep all smartphones away when driving, and pay attention to the road ahead.

Moving Forward After a Multi-Vehicle Crash
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings.
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows in the event of a multi-car crash.
According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year.
