Defensive Driving

One major step you can take in driving safely is to do it defensively, or protectively to anticipate the moves of others. The best way to do this is to act like every other driver is crazy, with the potential to pull a sudden, dangerous move. Watch other vehicles and give yourself space in case of any offensive movements such as swerving or rapid braking. Be sure to give yourself a 2-second spacing from the car in front of you to provide yourself ample time to react in case of an emergency. This spacing should double in inclement weather.

Pay Complete Attention

Distracted driving can be the downfall of even the best drivers in our area. In fact, 10 percent of fatal crashes and 17 percent of all accidents are caused by distracted driving. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that 9 people are killed and 1,000 are injured daily due to distracted driving. Be sure to minimize any distractions, including playing with the radio or texting. Every second that your eyes aren’t on the road, you’re risking covering large distances without seeing any surprises, including pedestrians and stopped traffic. We recommend changing your radio station or checking to see who called once your car is stopped at an intersection or you are parked. 

Obey Traffic Laws

While this may sound like a silly statement, the truth is that driving without following the rules of the road greatly increases your chances of getting into an accident. Speeding, in particular, is an issue that causes numerous avoidable incidents. The main reason for this is that speedier vehicles take a longer time to stop. The control you have over your vehicle also lessons as the speedometer rises. Posted speed limits are done with safety considerations in mind, so exceeding that number by a large amount means you are automatically driving in an unsafe manner. Speeding also ups the damages done when an accident does occur.

Driving can be a risky endeavor, but there are steps you can take to minimize many of the dangers. Next time, we’ll look at a few more driving tips to help increase driving safely.
