Prepare yourself for dangerous traffic – injury solicitors in Dunkeld
If you are planning a journey through an area which is known to have dangerous or difficult driving conditions, then you will need to prepare yourself. If you are not prepared then you are at risk of getting into accidents purely through panicking or not knowing the safest route for you. It is always best to avoid driving in dangerous traffic, but sometimes this cannot be avoided. If you can avoid it at all then here are some tips on preparing for the journey.
- Stay calm. Before you travel try to do some breathing exercises, talk to a friend or listen to music which makes you feel relaxed. This will put you in the right frame of mind for your journey, and ensure that you do not start out feeling harassed and stressed out.
- Wear your seatbelt. Although you should always be wearing a seatbelt, it is never more critical than when you are travelling through dangerous traffic.
- Travel with someone else. This will not only help you to keep calm, but your passengers can also keep an eye on the road for you so that they can point out any potential hazards that you may have missed.
- Check your mirrors. Make sure that all of your mirrors are well positioned and that you have no blind spots in your car. Being able to see every angle of the road is crucial to staying safe in dangerous traffic.
- Look carefully before making turns or changing direction. Make sure that there is nothing coming in any direction that could cause you harm, and that you know exactly where you are turning and where this leads to. Be aware of signs which will warn you of one way streets and so on, and pay attention to traffic lights.
