There are more than 6 million car accidents in the US every year. Over 3 million people are injured, and almost 40,000 die as a result of these accidents. One of the best things you can do when on the road to avoid being part of this statistic is to drive safely and learn how to avoid car accidents.

No one wants to be in a car accident. But unfortunately, they happen. And when they do, it’s important to have a good car accident lawyer on your side. A car accident lawyer from Tuttle Law, P.A. can help you avoid some of the common mistakes that people make after an accident, and can also help you get the compensation you deserve if you are involved in one. 

Here are tips for avoiding car accidents.

Know Your Limits

The first step in avoiding auto accidents is knowing your own limits and driving within them. Always drive at a speed that’s appropriate for the conditions, and never drive while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Driving under the influence can impair your judgment and reflexes, leading to accidents that sober drivers could have avoided. Watch out for pedestrians and cyclists, especially at night or in bad weather. Also, be wary of things like construction zones and school zones.

Leave Plenty of Distance Between You and Other Cars

Get your hands off your phone. The best way to avoid a crash caused by a distracted driver is to make sure you’re not the one doing the driving while distracted! Even if you live in an area where it’s legal, don’t drive while texting or talking on the phone.

The best way to avoid this? Put your phone in a bag or purse before you get behind the wheel so you can’t access it until you stop driving. If that sounds impossible, consider downloading an app that blocks calls and texts while you’re driving.

Avoid Aggressive Drivers

Don’t become one. Try not to drive when you’re angry or frustrated; it’s never worth the risk. If someone is driving aggressively, stay as far away from them as possible. Aggressive drivers are a leading cause of car accidents.

In order to avoid being in an accident, it is important to be aware of the signs of an aggressive driver and know how to respond. By knowing how to stay safe, you can help prevent an accident from happening. A car accident lawyer from Tuttle Law, P.A. can provide you with information on how to best avoid car accidents, and they can also help you if you are involved in a car accident.
