Prevent Road Accidents From Happening

While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64.

That is why it is indeed crucial that we drive defensively 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.

– Do not assume you know the other driver’s intention.

– Also, it is good to positively react to other drivers on the reoad.

– This one, we should never neglect: yield at intersections, even if you have right of way.

– Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phones, unstrapped toddlers, etc.
