Defensively to Prevent Road Accidents
While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities we do daily. That is because traffic accidents are a major public health threat. In fact, traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
Therefore, it is indeed important that everyone drives defensively so we could avoid road accidents as much as possible.
Here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
- Always drive at a controllable speed.
- It is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention.
- Be ready 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.
