How to Avoid Car Accidents
Posted on Jan 25, 2019
Sometimes, there are instances or unlucky chances when you get into an accident. You may very well loathe these instances and you can almost think to yourself that things could have gone better. If you want to maximize the chances of being safe from an accident, take our tips:
- Be Aware of Blind spots
Blind spots are the areas around you and your car that your range of vision can't really see. This is why there are side mirrors and rear view mirrors. This enables the driver to stay alert and vigilant so he can remain ready and responsive if ever an unexpected road accident occurs. It may be easy to advise these things, and in fact, you can go ahead and say this to all the drivers out there; but the fact is that blind spots are easy to see but the problem is the awareness to it. There are drivers who suddenly lose their focus while driving and miss checking their blind spots before making a turn, an exit or a stop.
- Keep your hands to the wheel
Try to keep both your hands on the steering wheel during the whole drive. This may be difficult if you happen to drive a vehicle with a manual transmission but it's still advisable regardless. Keep your hands off phones, cigarettes or anything that could be hindering your concentration from the road. Put off things that can be addressed later and focus on the wheel. If you really need to get access to your phone while driving (perhaps your car doesn't have GPS or you need to talk to a caller with no earbuds) then get a phone mount and have it installed in your ride.
- Keep a sound engine
If you want to be accident-free then you need to invest in your car's maintenance. You can't expect your car to perform right if its parts are not in a very good state. One good thing to remember about car-driving and safety is that "maintenance is the key". If you let your tires are for more than 2 years or until it's thoroughly worn out then there's a high chance that you may lose control of it while driving. It may skid, slide and go to directions you don't want it to go. This can cause an accident and you may end up paying a lot of bills for the people you've caused trouble too, and that's if you were lucky enough to live.
