Road safety and avoiding accidents

You must have sat your driving test and passed it and gotten your driving license, you are finally ready to hit the roads. However, it always comes down to the basics. When you’re on the road, all you ever want to do is to stay out of trouble and be safe. Sometimes it is inevitable to avoid accidents, it might happen because of some other reckless driver while you follow all the road rules. But a lot of times, you can take preventive measures to keep accidents and unfortunate incidents at the bay.

  1. Stay focused and avoid any distractions. Whether it is your mobile phone ringing or you need to change the song, don’t pick up your phone. Even if your phone has the hands free feature to it or you put your phone on loudspeaker, your mind would still be engrossed and you would not be able to focus solely on the road. If the call is important, park your car and then attend it. As for the music, make a playlist of your favourite songs beforehand and put it on shuffle so you would not feel the urge to pick your mobile. Sometimes, all it takes is a second to lose your focus and an unfortunate incident might happen.
  2. Do not drink and drive. Even if you drink just a little, your vision may be impaired and your judgement and mind might be clouded. Therefore, once you are even a bit drink, get a ride home or book a cab beforehand. If you drink and drive, you might put yourself and others at risk. Drinking may cause chemical effects in your brain which would cloud your mind.
  3. Don’t over speed and compete with other drivers. Stay in the designated speed limit so that you have complete control over your car. If somebody comes in front of your car, if you are speeding, it is less likely that you will be able to bring your car to a halt. In the spur of the moment, you might get a confused paving way for an accident. Sometimes, other rowdy drivers may overtake you on the road and try to get ahead of you. Your safest bet is to let them get ahead of you. Slow down your car a little so they can get out of your way.
  4. Hasty and impetuous drivers are a very common occurrence on the road. All it takes is a moment to lose the balance of your car or your break might fail to cause severe damages and in worst cases causalities.
