Almost all traffic accidents can be prevented by keeping a safe distance between each vehicle and by staying attentive to the roads at all times. Do not let cell phones or anything else distract you for even a split second. If the weather conditions get bad you must either drive more slowly and carefully, or get off the road completely. Staying alert and safe is the best way to avoid accidents.
