Scan the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead in order to look out or recognize potential hazards in time. Our bodies weren’t designed to travel at 50mph. We were designed for speeds of less than 10mph, thus you need to learn to consciously break that natural instinct and focus farther ahead.
As common of an occurrence as they are, many people do not suspect what follows after a car crash. Therefore, it is important to know how to proceed in case you find yourself or a family member involved in an accident.
