How to avoid road accidents when you are driving
When you are the passenger in a vehicle, there is very little you can do to ensure you don’t get into an accident. As a driver, you have much more control over the situation and can do a few things to make sure that you keep yourself and your passenger’s completely safe in the car. Obvious things such as not drinking or talking on your mobile phone can keep you safe, but there are more subtle things you can do to keep yourself safe, and here are some of them.
- Be controlled. When you are driving, try not to give into the temptation to show off, or to be impatient. It is risky moves like this that can cause accidents, and they are unnecessary.
- Get to know your car. The better you know your car, the less likely it is that you will have an accident. If you understand the space that your car takes up, and how to work all of the gears, steering and so on, then you will have more control over your vehicle.
- Don’t forget to signal. A lot of accidents are caused because of something this simple. If you plan on turning at all, make sure that you signal so that the cars behind and in front of you know what you are about to do.
- Keep your eyes on the road, but look around. Don’t just look at the road directly in front of you, move your eyes around the space so that you know what is happening all over the road, and can identify hazards before they pose a threat to you.
