A crash involving multiple vehicles can happen in congested roads, busy streets, and intersections. Moreover, it is important to drive defensively and abide by all driving laws. Thus, you can ensure your safety and the safety of surrounding vehicles, motorists, and pedestrians.
As a driver, it is your responsibility to be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Moreover, driving defensively prepares you for emergencies.
