The number of traffic accidents is at an all-time high. A new report from the Centre for Internet and Society found that over 90% of these accidents are caused by human error. While this statistic can be discouraging, it also provides a great incentive to stay safe while driving! In this blog post, we will discuss three ways you can do so.
– Keep your car in good condition
Keeping your car healthy and well-maintained is a great way to reduce the risk of having an accident. There are some quick, easy things you can do once or twice per month which will help ensure that your vehicle stays in top-notch condition! like regularly check both front (engine) and back wheels for oil leaks by looking around rubber seals where they meet metal panels, around hoses connecting engine components such as turbochargers/superchargers; also make sure no visible stains appear anywhere on exterior surfaces like beneath cars hoods. Don’t forget to check electricity, water, and tires. It is also important to have a regular vehicle check-up schedule.
– Don’t follow too closely behind other vehicles.
When driving, one consideration is how far apart you and the vehicle in front of are. Make sure there’s enough stopping distance between your car to brake if needed quickly- these extra yards can be all that stands between an accident or safe stopping at a red light! It also helps get a better overview of what lies ahead on roadways clearer with space around us too.
– Keep your eyes on the road, not your phone!
You should always keep your eyes on the road when you’re driving. You can’t get distracted by looking at your phone, or else an accident could happen! The best thing to do is to rid yourself of all distractions while driving. Even using gadgets that seem helpful, such as hands-free devices can cause us to stop paying attention so we should try not to use anything unless it’s necessary, and even adjusting radio dials might be tempting if you really want your lunch or daydreaming going unnoticed by those around you!
