Safe Driving Tips To Avoid A Car Accident

by The Brown Firm / February 15, 2016

Stay Focused While Driving

Car Accidents account for a significant portion of the total number of injuries and deaths sustained by Americans every year. The majority of accidents occur due to negligent driving by people who are distracted. There are many reasons people become distracted while driving and not all of them have to do with a cell phone. If you focus on anything other than driving, you run the risk of causing a car accident.

Driving Tips To Avoid A Car Accident in Georgia

Here Are Some Tips To Staying Focused While Driving:

Stay Off Your Cell Phone

One of the most well known driving distractions is texting and driving or making phone calls. Try putting your phone out of reach, turn the screen around, or just turn the phone off altogether. Your attention should be focused on the road, not on your phone ringing or new text message alert. 

Avoid Multitasking 

Before you pull out of the parking lot, make sure your things are organized the way you want them to be. Set up your GPS route, plug in your phone, or find your favorite radio station before you begin driving. The more organized you are before, the less you will have to reach for and take your eyes off of the road when you need something. 

Only Drive When Rested

Before you begin any drive, especially a long one, make sure you have gotten enough sleep. Driving any distance while you are exhausted is extremely dangerous and could cause a severe accident. If you feel yourself drifting off while you are driving, pull over and rest before you continue. 

Keep Your Eyes Scanning The Road 

It is important to not only look at the car in front of you but also the traffic ahead of that car. This will increase your chance of seeing a problem while still having enough time to react to it, and it will decrease your chance of rear-ending the vehicle in front of you encase they make a sudden stop. 

Keep Up The Maintenance On Your Car
