Avoiding Car Crashes Starts with You

No one ever expects to get into a crash, but many people do. They may not be focused on the road, or they might be distracted by texting. Whatever the cause may be, these negligent drivers make the roads more dangerous for everyone.

One thing to remember is that you can help prevent yourself from getting into a crash. These are some tips that can help you stay safe on the roads.

Avoid the fast lane

One tip is to avoid traveling in the "fast" lane, or outermost lane, on a highway. This is where people need to go to get around slower traffic when they want to pass and should otherwise be kept open. Additionally, if you travel in the right or center lane, you're more easily able to move over into another lane if something forces you to change lanes quickly.

Watch your blind spots

It's a good habit to begin looking over your shoulder before you move into the left or right lane. Although the vehicle's mirrors do help you see the cars around you, there's a risk of one being in a blind spot. Make sure to look next to your vehicle as well as in front and behind it.

Keep watch for dangerous drivers

Another important step is to look at other people's cars and to watch out for those who may be dangerous. It's not always the case, but in some instances, those driving damaged or dirty vehicles are distracted or preoccupied in life, and that could lead to a crash. If you notice them looking down, drifting or violating traffic laws, take steps to back away from the vehicle or to get ahead of it.
