What To Do Before A Car Accident
There are steps you can take to both decrease your chance of being involved in a car accident and if you are in an accident, the severity of your injury. Some of the simplest and best methods include: • Being a defensive driver—this is essentially driving and being uber aware of your surroundings, expecting what other drivers are going to do. The National Safety Council offers courses on defensive driving. • Obeying traffic laws and speed limits—far too many car accidents each year are preventable if reckless drivers would follow traffic laws and norms. One of the most common types of car accidents is speeding related. • Driving only when sober and rested—thousands of car accidents each year are caused by motorists drinking and driving. Driving while intoxicated is a very serious crime and could also require tough civil litigation. Furthermore, falling asleep while driving is also a very real danger; this type of car accidents is, often times, unintentional but, nonetheless, is an incredibly serious situation. Therefore, it is always best only to operate a vehicle when you are completely sober and well rested. It is always a good idea to take precautions in life. The phrase, “it’s better safe than sorry,” does tend to be true. Accidents do happen, but you can still increase your safety.
