How to Avoid a Collision

Although some collisions are more serious than others, getting into an accident is something no one wants to happen. Most collisions are avoidable by implementing safe driving techniques. It is your responsibility as the driver to minimize the risk of hitting cars or pedestrians. Use the tips below to decrease your chances of getting into an accident.

  • Stay calm and don't be aggressive with other drivers. If you notice another driver tailgating you or driving dangerously, let them pass and give them space.
  • Don't forget about your blind spot. When changing lanes don't just depend on your mirrors. Glance over your shoulder to make sure it's safe before you make your move.
  • Check your rear-view mirror every 5-8 seconds, especially when you are slowing down, so that you are aware of your surroundings. And don't forget to use your turn signals so that other drivers know your intentions.
  • Keep your vehicle well maintained. Check tire pressure, brakes, oil, and windshield wipers to make sure they are working properly.
