Preventing Road Accidents From Happening
Roadways, while scrupulously created and mapped for efficient travel, are one of the most dangerous settings. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat.
Indeed, traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.
That is why it is crucial that we drive reponsibly in order to avoid accidents as much as possible.
Here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving:
– First of all, always drive at a controllable speed.
– Never assume you know the other driver’s intention.
– Also, it is good to be prepared to positively react to other drivers.
– We should never neglect to yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.
– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Removing all the distractions would help us prevent accidents
